Alt-J returned to the fray last month with the first single lifted off their much anticipated sophomore album This Is All Yours. Marking what the band herald a “new sound”, ‘Hunger of the Pine’ is an epic piece of ambient electronica brimming with multilayered instruments and Joe Newman’s unmistakable strong but soothing vocals. The band have unveiled the visual for the track which is directed by the brilliant Nabil. The clip matches the songs intensity and sees a man running through a forest and being pierced by arrows.
Watch the Hunger Games-esque clip up top.
The track is available as a free download to anyone who preorders the album, which is being released via Canvasback/Infectious Music in CD, digital and double-vinyl formats. Pre-order the album here.
