Ahead of the release of his third King Krule album ‘Man Alive!’, Archy Marshall shares ‘Cellular’, the opening track on the new LP.
The record, which arrives as the eagerly anticipated follow-up to 2017 album The Ooz, will include the four recently released tracks which featured on Krule’s short film Hey World. The project which featured the lo-fi songs were presented as part of a short film directed by Charlotte Patmore, the longterm girlfriend of Archy Marshall.
“I felt like I had gotten out of a dark place, and I was on a high,” Marshall explains. “I appreciated the depression… but I also liked how I felt better in the here and now.”
With an animated video created by Jamie Wolfe, who previously collaborated with Archy on a short video for ‘Vidual’, the director has also created animations for the likes of Gucci and the TV show Rick & Morty.
Man Alive! will arrive February 21 via True Panther and Matador Records. Stream the new number, below.
‘Man Alive!’ will be available on standard vinyl, limited edition white 12” vinyl and an indie edition with bonus flexi disc including the ‘Hey World!’ version of Perfecto Miserable.
