Alt-J have released “3WW,” the first single from their forthcoming album, RELAXER, due June 9. Additionally, the band has details about their 8-stop U.S. tour kicking off in July. The album follows their previous release, This Is All Yours, which earned the British foursome a GRAMMY nomination in 2015 for Best Alternative Music Album.
“3WW,” the first of the album’s eight tracks, begins as a very minimalist song and grows in complexity through the course of the five-minute track. Listen below. The video carries two warnings; that it contains flashing images and that it’s not the official video.
Those who pre-order RELAXER from the band’s web store will have first access to pre-sale tickets beginning Tuesday, March 7 at 10:00 am local, with general on-sale Friday, March 10. For ticket links, see the band’s website.
