Manca ancora qualche settimana alla pubblicazione dell'album, ma video promozionale e singolo sono già in circolazione, seppure in versione non identica a quella che ne farà parte: The Unthanks, Mount the Air.

Written by Unthanks pianist and producer, and husband of Rachel Unthank, Adrian McNally, Mount the Air is based on the themes of a one-verse traditional ditty, found in a book of Dorset songs in Cecil Sharp House by Becky Unthank, who co-writes some of the words with McNally. The piece features the playing of the world-class trumpet player, Tom Arthurs; a former BBC New Generation Artist and Elysian Quartet collaborator, now immersed in the Berlin improv scene. Mount The Air is the work of an act who still believe whole heartedly in the value of the album as an art-form. On very limited resources and makeshift facilities, they have shown extraordinary commitment and devotion to that art-form, to create their finest work yet.
