JUNGLE share their new single TRUTH!



“Their third effort sees them significantly expanding their horizons, and blowing the idea of what a Jungle song can be wide open.” – NME

“Like Goldie and LTJ Bukem at The Blue Note in the mid 90s, Jungle got their groove back.” – Mixmag

“London dance duo turned 14-legged groove machine Jungle have a track record of disco-infused floorfillers.” – The Guardian

British production duo Jungle are in the midst of a supercharged comeback ahead of the August 13th release of their ambitious and eagerly anticipated third album ‘Loving In Stereo’. Recent singles ‘Keep Moving’, ‘Talk About It’ and ‘Romeo’ have hit playlists at Radio 1, while simultaneously earning huge streaming support. Jungle are poised to drop  into the upper reaches of charts all over the world, as their modernist disco-rooted sound introduces them to a huge new audience, building upon their previous accomplishments: a billion streams, two Top 10 albums, 750,000 album sales and a Mercury Prize nomination.

The next step in their triumphant return comes as they share their new single ‘Truth’.  Propelled by a driving Motorik rhythm, a punk-infused energy and bright vocal harmonies, ‘Truth’ is a leap away from what we’ve come to expect from Jungle. As with their recent singles, the duo have hit the accelerator, whole-heartedly embraced joyous hooks, and channelled the fervour of their renowned live show.  It’s different sonically but proves that Jungle are defined by a feeling rather than by genre..

The creative architects of their music, visual content and wider aesthetic, Jungle have raised the bar with the accompanying ‘Loving In Stereo’ visual album.  The video for ‘Truth’ is the latest result of that vision. Shot in one continuous take, the camera pans from right-to-left revealing different characters in each room. As the video pans back-and-forth, the characters weave between rooms, the physicality of their movements escalating as their interaction grows. There’s also a beautiful symmetry to the way in which each dancer’s styling perfectly complements the room that they’re in.

J&T add “Truth is another moment on the record which came very quickly and naturally. It was the most different sounding thing we had made at the time, and for that reason couldn’t ignore it. For us it’s about youth, love and trust. The feeling of finding someone who means more than anything else in the world.”

‘Truth’ adds to the narrative that the visual album is gradually unveiling with each video. Directors (J Lloyd and Charlie Di Placido) have excelled at balancing simple yet imaginative concepts with a dazzling flair. The entire visual album (14 videos) was shot over the course of five days, a demanding but liberating schedule that imbibes each video with unrestrained energy.

‘Loving In Stereo’ album is available to pre-order here, and is available on digital, CD, black vinyl, marbled vinyl and cassette formats. A selection of bundles are also available, which include signed items and new merch designs.

The album will be launched with a special show at Kingston’s Pryzm on August 12th in association with the town’s renowned indie store Banquet Records. Any remaining tickets are available here. They will then visit three Rough Trade stores for DJ sets and signing sessions, calling at Bristol (August 13th, midday), London (August 13th, 6pm) and Nottingham (August 15th, 6pm). There will be a ticketed livestream of the album in full at 20.00 BST on August 13th. Tickets here.

Fans are also invited to attend an exclusive pre-release screening of the visual album, introduced by J&T themselves at The Picturehouse Cinema, Piccadilly on August 11th. The immersive Dolby Atmos® music mix, aesthetics and choreography co-exist as one stunningly distinctive artistic vision.
This is a chance to experience one of the UK’s finest duos – as you’ve never heard them before.
