Unloved announce new album with Killing Eve-featured single

By | Published on Wednesday 18 May 2022


Unloved have announced their new album, ‘The Pink Album’, will be out later this year. They’ve also released new single ‘Mother’s Been A Bad Girl’, which you may well recognise from the heavy rotation it had in the latest (and final) series of ‘Killing Eve’.

“In my head, ‘Mother’s Been A Bad Girl’ is a tale of duality, searching for authenticity”, says frontwoman Jade Vincent. “It slips effortlessly from the point of view of those watching – surmising, to those judging – cheekily chanting, ‘Mother’s been a bad girl!’ over and over, all sass, steeped in tradition, and ending in the final words of the dignified matriarch, regaining her composure, ‘Are you truly certain you can handle me?’”

Formed by Vincent, Keefus Ciancia and David Holmes in 2015, Unloved came to wider prominence when they were hired to create the soundtrack for ‘Killing Eve’. Contributing to all four series, they built a sonic identity for the show that won them a British Academy Television Craft Award in 2019, and also got them nominated at the Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards the following year.

The 22 track album is set for release on 2 Sep, and will feature collaborations with Jarvis Cocker, Étienne Daho, Raven Violet and Jon Spencer.
