Dutch Uncles have shared ‘True Entertainment’, the lead single and title track from their upcoming sixth album.

It marks the English indie-poppers’ first new material in over 5 years – their last full-length release was 2017’s ‘Big Balloon’, which Dork’s 4-star review lauded as, “yet another example of how Dutch Uncles make the edges of pop cut all that much sharper.”

The track debuted on BBCX Rasio 6 this morning, October 24th, and is now available on all platforms. A music video accompaniment has also arrived, featuring lead vocalist Duncan Wallis performing some glorious karaoke.

On the footages, Wallis has shared: “I know too well myself the mountainous task these poor sods have, and the mental gymnastics required to envision it being remotely successful, so in a way, this pays tribute to the craft. I was determined to fashion a goatee beard for the shoot, to separate myself from the character – it is a character. But I was mortified to see myself in the gold suit, immediately understanding Elvis’ pain.”

“When I was researching Elvis’ gold suit, I found that he actually really hated it and only wore it two or three times,” director Nick Middleton adds. “I think the idea of a job that’s meant to bring joy to people’s hearts being really tiring – and sometimes even hateful – really intriguing. I think people can relate to that.”
