IN COLD BLOOD
(single taken from RELAXER album out 2 June 2017 through Liberator Music/Infectious Music)
alt-J, one of the most successful British bands of the millennium, today release their new single ‘In Cold Blood’, which is available now. ‘In Cold Blood’ was premiered on BBC Radio 1 as MistaJam’s Hottest Record In The World.
“We started writing ‘In Cold Blood’ in our Leeds days and finished it last year in London,” say the band. “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.”
‘In Cold Blood’ follows the acclaimed ‘3WW’ as the second song to be lifted from their forthcoming third album RELAXER, which will now be released on 2 June, on heavyweight vinyl, CD, and digitally. The record is the follow up to their UK #1, Grammy and Brit Award-nominated album This Is All Yours, and was recorded all over London – from Shoreditch to St John’s Wood, Crouch Hill to Brixton – with producer Charlie Andrew for a third time.
RELAXER follows This Is All Yours, and Mercury Prize and Ivor Novello Award-winning debut 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’s O2 arena and New York’s legendary Madison Square Garden on their last tour.
