Where Did the Night Fall is the fifth regular studio album from British electronic music act Unkle, released on 10 May 2010 (2010-05-10).[7]

Background[edit]

As a documentation of the work on the album, on 13 April 2009, James Lavelle, Unkle's mastermind, started an official "UNKLE Blog". According to the first post, Lavelle started to work in studio in January 2009 with Pablo Clements, James Griffith, Joel Cadbury, Gavin Clark, Matt Pierce and Mike Lowry.[8]

Promotion[edit]

On 16 August 2009 (2009-08-16) a single, "Heavy Drug (Surrender Sounds Mix)", was made available digitally via Beatport and iTunes. On 27 December 2009 (2009-12-27) the download was followed by a remix EP with remixes by King Unique, Steve Mac and Future Beat Alliance.[9]

On 11 February 2010 (2010-02-11) a song, "Natural Selection", appeared as a streaming on Spin magazine's website,[10] and was later made available to download as a 320 kbit/s MP3 file, via UNKLE's official website. Beginning on 31 March, a Warm Digits remix of "Natural Selection" was made available for download to customers who had pre-ordered "Where Did the Night Fall" on UNKLE's online store.[11]

Available on the UNKLE website was a 2 disc limited edition of the album, which included a second disc containing instrumental versions of all the songs.

Where Did the Night Fall – Another Night Out[edit]

On 9 February, UNKLE revealed that Where Did the Night Fall would be re-released as Where Did the Night Fall – Another Night Out. The first disc will contain the same songs that are on the original album but the second disc contains material from two of UNKLE's previous EPs, plus a number of exclusive and rare tracks. It was released on 11 April 2011.

The standard edition comes packaged as a double jewel case with a 16-page booklet. The limited edition comes in a gold outer slipcase featuring a fully re-worked 16-page board book and 32-page booklet with new exclusive shots from the original photo shoot with Warren Du Preez and Nick Thornton Jones.
