Darkstar have unveiled their new single 'Amplified Ease' - listen to it below.

Darkstar are changing. The electronic group have expanded and signed a new deal, finding a home at Warp. Working on fresh material, the band have thrown themselves open to new ideas, new possibilities.

Upcoming album 'News From Nowhere' is set to be released on February 4th, and the band have already unveiled recent single 'Timeaway'. Now Darkstar have decided to unveil their next single, posting two very different versions of 'Amplified Ease' online.

James Young from the band explains "We had been watching the Martin Scorcese documentary on George Harrison and took an interest in how he approached 'My Sweet Lord' as a mantra rather than a song. Amplified Ease began in a similar fashion, it was more of a repetitive chant different from a verse, chorus arrangement".

Stream the album version of 'Amplified Ease' below.

Meanwhile, Darkstar have also posted a live version of 'Amplified Ease' online. Recorded at Asylum, London you can listen to the performance below.
