- Read more: King Krule – ‘Man Alive!’ review: the Krulean gloom lifts to reveal a more optimistic worldview
Krule (real name Archy Marshall) released his cover on Bandcamp yesterday (January 23) along with a short statement.
“Recorded in sweat, last summer, for a friend,” he wrote.
Listen to the track below:
The new cover follows last year’s release of King Krule’s third album, ‘Man Alive!’, which NME rated four out of five stars in a review, calling it “the most uplifting King Krule album yet”.
In April last year, Krule shard a 30-minute performance filmed for Jehnny Beth’s French TV show Echoes. He also dropped a music video for the ‘Man Alive!’ track ‘Comet Face’ in August, directed by filmmaking duo CC Wade.
When cancelling this year’s instalment of the festival, End Of The Road confirmed that their 2021 festival will run from September 2-5, and that Pixies, King Krule, Big Thief, Bright Eyes, Aldous Harding and Little Simz will carry their 2020 bookings over to 2021 to perform at next year’s festival.
Introducing the song via a Facebook post, Parks described the King Krule track as “one of [her] favourite songs of all time.”
“It reminds me of waking up slowly, soft grey skies and swimming,” she said.
