With Karl Hyde and Rick Smith putting together the final touches on a new Underworld album, new track "Scribble" makes its premiere on BBC Radio 1.

Underworld’s (Karl Hyde and Rick Smith) last album, Oblivion with Bells, was released in 2007. With their new sixth studio album (as of yet untitled) expected by the end of summer, the duo premiered a new track, “Scribble”, on Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1 show last evening. And they are making a version of it available as a free download from their afterwards (for one week only).


“Scribble” is “described as a gene-splice between Yellow Magic Orchestra and Grooverider blasting out over the dancefloor at Fabric on a Friday night, ‘Scribble’ is a writing and production collaboration with Hospital recording artist High Contrast.” With Hyde’s collaboration with Mark Knight and D. Ramirez, “Downnpipe”, still smoldering in my brain from last September, I am eager for some proper new Underworld.


Be sure to sign up for an account (and login sometime after the broadcast) for your free download of a short version of “Scribble” as MP3. A higher quality version will also be available for sale. Remember its only available for one week.
