As Archy Marshall (that’s King Krule, to you and I) gears up to unleash his new project ‘A New Place 2 Drown’ alongside his brother Jack, he’s taken to Benji B’s show on Radio 1 to open up on the project.
‘A New Place 2 Drown’ consists of an album, a book of poetry and a short film from Will Robson Scott. As well as talking through his inspirations for the project, Marshall discussed his views on London’s changing landscape - “It’s scary… I know a lot of people who are homeless, essentially” - and his obsession with Grand Theft Auto 5. Apparently some of the lyrics on ‘ANP2D’ are “all the cheats for GTA5… I had to get that in somewhere, I’m a hella weird gamer as well as an artist,” Archy confessed.

In addition, he's shared a few sneak peeks of pages of the project's book via Pitchfork. You can see those below. 'A New Place 2 Drown' is released today (10th December 2015).
