Alt-J’s new song “Adeline” tells the story of a Tasmanian devil who falls in love — listen

on May 24, 2017, 2:10pm

June 2nd is the big release day for Relaxer, the latest album from Alt-J. A pair of previews have been revealed thus far, “3WW” and “In Cold Blood” (complete with a music video narrated by the Iggy Pop). Today, the UK indie rockers return with a third offering, “Adeline”.

According to a tweet from the band, this new track recounts the story of a Tasmanian devil who “falls in love with a woman as he watches her swim.” Mirroring the longing and curiosity that often comes with falling head over heels, “Adeline” is atmospheric and, at times, even ghostly.

Stream it below.

Along with dropping today’s track, Alt-J have expanded their North American tour due to high demand. New dates include Los Angeles, Montreal, and Atlanta.
