Alt-J Crank Up The Hype For ‘Relaxer’ With New Song

Written by Jack Andrew Cribb

Fans are patiently awaiting June 2nd, when alt-J release their third studio album Relaxer, and the band couldn’t be doing more to tease the fans about the project, releasing yet another single from the album, Adeline.

In a recent tweet, the band explained the story behind the song, which seems to be a pretty niche plot from which the band have crafted their music.

The track is sombre, and along with previous releases 3WW and In Cold Blood, shows us that Relaxer may be alt-J’s darkest album to date, yet we’ll have to figure that out on June 2nd.

Along with this release, and due to high demand, the band have added more dates to their north American tour, which you can check out here.
