alt-J share new song partly written on a £1 keyboard, bring forward new album release

30 March 2017, 09:26 | Written by Laurence Day

alt-J have another new track - this one's called "In Cold Blood" and it was written (partly) on a "Casiotone that cost £1.05 on eBay".

The track follows lead single "3WW", which features vocals from Wolf Alice frontwoman Ellie Rowsell, in teasing upcoming album Relaxer.

"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," the band write on Facebook. "We hope you enjoy it."

As well as the new track, alt-J have revealed that their new LP has been brought forward a week to 2 June. Hurray!
