ALT-J have announce their third album, ‘Relaxer’, due for release on 9 June via Infectious Music on heavyweight vinyl, CD, cassette and digital formats.
The record is the follow up to their number one GRAMMY and BRIT Award-nominated album THIS IS ALL YOURS.
The album was recorded all over London – from Shoreditch to St John’s Wood; Crouch Hill to Brixton – with producer Charlie Andrew for a third time. A first taste of the LP in the form of its opening track ‘3WW’ is available to stream and download now.
Relaxer Track Listing:
• IN COLD BLOOD
• HOUSE OF THE RISING SUN
• HIT ME LIKE THAT SNARE
• LAST YEAR
ALT-J are JOE NEWMAN, GUS UNGER-HAMILTON and THOM GREEN, one of the most successful British bands of the millennium. Relaxer follows This Is All Yours and the Mercury Prize and Ivor Novello Award-winning debut album AN AWESOME WAVE. Between them, the two records have sold in excess of two million copies and their songs have been streamed more than one billion times.
The band have headlined festivals across the globe and sold out London O2 Arena and New York’s legendary Madison Square Garden on their last tour. They now announce a return to the O2 Arena for a special show on Friday 16 June as part of the venue’s 10th birthday celebrations. Tickets for the show are on sale at 9.00am on Friday 10 March.
A number of festival shows are now also confirmed for the summer, with more to be announced soon; see http://www.altjband.com/ for further information and announcements.
