Alt-J have shared the first single from their upcoming album, Relaxer. Listen to “3WW” through the animated video above, courtesy of the band’s YouTube. Be warned that the video contains flashing images.
“3WW” is a tune that balances gentle hypnotic grooves with intensely glitchy moments. Traditional instrumentation of piano and acoustic guitar blend with hand claps and strings to create a worldly vibe.
Wolf Alice’s Ellie Rowsell is featured toward the end of the track. She sings the final verse about “Girls from above,” and joins Alt-J lead singer Joe Newman on the final chorus.
Relaxer is scheduled to be released on June 2, 2017. Pick it up on Amazon.
