Urthboy shares new single ‘Underline’

It's the second preview of the MC's forthcoming album 'Savour'

Urthboy has shared his new single ‘Underline’, the second preview of the MC’s forthcoming seventh album, ‘Savour’.

Following on from the more meditative, Jarulah-assisted ‘Cheetah and Gazelle’, which arrived back in June, ‘Underline’ is a little more energetic. It’s a house-influenced cut that sees Urthboy singing above gritty, wobbling synths before a big, deceptively euphoric refrain.

The track was produced by Holy Holy‘s Oscar Dawson and originally written with Urthboy’s The Herd bandmate Sulo, and – like ‘Cheetah and Gazelle’ – features co-production from Pip Norman.


It arrives alongside a video that continues the narrative introduced with ‘Cheetah and Gazelle’ and sees Urthboy – real name Tim Levinson – being chased down a dirt road by a group of kids. As with that clip, it’s directed by Triana Hernandez. Watch that below:

Per a press release shared alongside ‘Underline’ today, the song is taken from Urthboy’s forthcoming album ‘Savour’, which will be released in two parts. A release date has not been set for the record, but it’s expected to arrive later this year.

Aside from a Christmas-themed record titled ‘Jangle Bells’ that arrived last year, Urthboy last released an album in 2016 with ‘The Past Beats Inside Me Like a Second Heartbeat’. Since then, he’s also shared the 2018 EP ‘Turning Circle’ and three standalone singles in 2020: ‘Fever Dream’, ‘The Night Took You’ and ‘Sunrise In My Head’.
