alt-J – one of the most successful British bands of the millennium – have released their new single ‘In Cold Blood’, available to stream, download and as an instant grab now via Infectious Music (Gallo Record Company for South Africa).
“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’ in being lifted from their forthcoming third album RELAXER, which will now be released on 2 June in 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, 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.

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.
