Dieci anni dopo ‘Rock & Roll Submarine’, album che seguiva la reunion del 2010, i mai troppo incensati Nash Kato e King Roeser – URGE OVERKILL – tornano con il nuovo album ‘Oui’ che sarà fuori il 22 gennaio via Omnivore Recordings. Il primo singolo è ‘Freedom’ degli Wham! rivisitata in chiave UO. Nash Kato racconta: “The King & l were wrapping up a rather odd (albeit pleasant) acoustic ‘Dynamic Duo’ tour through EuroTown and enduring our rather fortunate exodus from Moscow. Naturally, our TM/chauffeur was tuned into some crazy station (and anything goes on Radio Free Europe?) whence we heard ‘Freedom.’ It sounded vaguely familiar, but instantly catchy? After returning home, we eventually found it online (the word ‘freedom’ our only clue) and were flabbergasted to discover it was indeed penned by George Michael?! We demoed the tune, then somehow shelved it, as we began writing what would become Oui. Upon receiving the dreadful news of his premature departure in 2016, we felt compelled to include that track on the album. We as UO are proud to represent a true music legend with this inaugural offering, from a record we’ve dedicated to another rock legend, Bobby Vee (who also passed later that year) in whose studio we recorded ‘Freedom’”.
