alt-J Announce new album The Dream

UK band alt-J have announced their new album The Dream, will drop on February 11, 2022, via Canvasback/Infectious Music. Along with the news alt-J have shared a video album track “U&ME”. The Dream was produced by long-time collaborator Charlie Andrew and is the follow up to their Relaxer LP, released in 2017. Directed by band member Gus Unger-Hamilton’s brother, Prosper Unger-Hamilton, the video for “U&ME” is the first to feature the full band. It’s an evocative video that recalls summer memories and was inspired by Newman’s experiences at a festival in Melbourne.

“U&ME” was written during various soundchecks across the globe, when the band got back to London and heard the recordings they knew it was one of their most dynamic recordings to date. Speaking on the process, Joe Newman says, “It gathered momentum on its own, it was best to just get out of its way. We were just there.”

Elaborating on the meaning of “U&ME”, Gus Unger-Hamilton says, “It’s about being at a festival with your best friends, having a good time, togetherness, and the feeling in life that nothing could be any better than it is right now”

The band has announced the first leg of their world tour with their most extensive ever North American run to date with Portugal The Man. The tour sees them play arenas across the United States and Canada in 2022. Joining them are Sir Chloe* and Cherry Glazerr.**
