Currently off on a UK tour in support of ace new album ‘Boy King’, Wild Beasts took to Maida Vale for a 6 Music session yesterday.

Enlisting Anna Calvi for a run-through of ‘Alpha Female’ on Marc Riley’s evening show, frontman Hayden Thorpe shared vocal duties with the fellow Domino-signee, lending the track a new, sparring quality.

Watch the performance back below, along with a rendition of ‘All The Kings Men’ from 2009’s ‘Two Dancers’. Wild Beasts were DIY’s August issue cover stars - catch up with that cover feature here, and pop along to any of the below remaining ‘Boy King’ tour dates.
