Hunger of the Pine
Back in January, alt-J found themselves short one bassist, leaving fans wondering what would become of the group. Fast forward six months and here we are with a brand new song from the trio, “Hunger of the Pine.” Thankfully, it sounds like the alt-J we all came to love on 2012’s An Awesome Wave. With that said, the band is obviously trying new things. The track samples Miley Cyrus’ “4×4,” specifically the line “I’m a female rebel.” Yes, it’s a bit odd at first, but after a few listens it sounds right. Stream the track below.
“Hunger of the Pine” is the first of 13 tracks that will appear on alt-J’s sophomore LP, This is All Yours, out September 22nd via Infectious/Atlantic.
