Alt-J’s New Song Features Miley Cyrus. What? Yes.

Ok so here is what you need to know. The song is called “Hunger of the Pine.” It’s really good. The Miley Cyrus sample is from the song “4×4” and it’s her singing “I’m a female rebel.” (Yes you are girl!!!!) By the way, that’s pine as in longing for, not as in the tree. Their new album This Is All Yours comes out in September. They’ll be touring North America in October.

Here’s the album art:

Here’re the lyrics:

HUNGER OF THE PINE
Sleeplessly embracing
Butterflies and needles
Line my seamed-up join

Encased in case I need it
In my stomach, for my heart
Chain mail

Hunger of the pine

Sleeplessly embracing
Yawn yearns into me
Plenty more tears in the sea

And so you finally use it
Bedding with me you see at night
Your heart wears knight armour

Hunger of the pine

Sleeplessly
Embracing
You

Realisation grew on me
As quickly as it takes your hand
To warm the cool side of the pillow

I’m there for you, be there for me
I’ll hum the song the soldiers sing
As they march outside our window

Hunger of the pine

Sleeplessly
Embracing
You

Une immense espérance a traversée la terre
Une immense espérance a traversée ma peur
