Dutch Uncles announce new album "True Entertainment" - out 10 March 2023
Dutch Uncles, Manchester’s much-revered electro art rock quartet, announce details of their long-awaited sixth album, True Entertainment, due for release on the 10th of March 2023 on Memphis Industries.
The title was a DJ name bestowed upon vocalist Duncan Wallis by guitarist Peter Broadhead. Wallis, an in-demand DJ and compare in his native city, wrote the acid house and Sign O’ The Times-era Prince-influenced title track and lead single when reflecting on the awkwardness he sometimes feels when he’s recognised as the singer in a band while working one of his many public-facing jobs.

To inaugurate the announce of the album, Dutch Uncles have released a video for lead single “True Entertainment”, shot at Droylsden Working Mens Club, watch below:
Interestingly, the video features a live vocal taped on set and mixed with the studio recording, intended as an homage to the art of live entertainment.
“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.” – Dutch Uncles lead vocalist Duncan Wallis on “True Entertainment”
