Alt-J – Hunger of the Pine

“Sleeplessly embracing, yawn yearns into me, plenty more tears in the sea.”

You’ve probably already heard of Alt-J (∆) by now, whether you heard their popular song “Breezeblocks,” or perhaps their song “Tesselate,” which has been covered by talents such as Mumford and Sons and Ellie Goulding.

The band is working on a sophomore album to follow An Awesome Wave, and they’ve released this new track as a bit of a teaser. Based on it’s inclusion of a saxophone and a Miley Cyrus sample, it’s safe to assume that the new record will have a bit of a new sound, which many anticipated after bassist Gwil Sainsbury left the band earlier this year. We’re ready to embrace this new sound and new album.

The new album, This Is All Yours, will be out on September 22nd.
