alt-J share ‘In Cold Blood’ from new album ‘Relaxer’

The track follows ‘3WW’ in previewing the trio’s third record, out in June.

alt-J have shared the second track to be lifted from their upcoming third album ‘Relaxer’. ‘In Cold Blood’ follows the Ellie Rowsell-featuring ‘3WW’ in previewing the record, out on 9th June.

The track was premiered just now on Mistajam’s Radio 1 show, who’s still sitting in for Annie Mac on weeknights. Speaking of the track in a press release, the band say: “We started writing ‘In Cold Blood’ in our Leeds days and finished it last year in London. The brass was recorded at Abbey Road; the keyboards were done on a Casiotone that cost £1.05 on eBay; and no-one is quite sure where the key change came from.”

The band are set to play a whole host of festivals across the summer, alongside a special show at London’s O2 Arena on 16th June, celebrating ten years of the venue.
