Archy Marshall is back under his King Krule alias.
King Krule has revealed his forth studio album Space Heavy is landing via XL Records on Friday 9 June 2023. It comes off the back of an intimate tour he undertook across venues in Paris, Berlin, London, New York and Long Island.
The news comes alongside a new single and accompanying video. ‘Seaforth’, sees Archy collaborate with Jocelyn Anquetil, who previously worked on visuals for ‘Alone, Omen 3′. The coastal video features nostalgic shots of two puppers – a father and his offspring in parks, while Archy takes his live performance down to the shoreline.
The forthcoming album was written between 2020 and 2022 on commutes between London and Liverpool and reflects “the space between” the areas which he called home and shared his time. The resulting 15 track record is available to pre-order on vinyl via his website.
It comes after King Krule released the 2021 live album You Heat Me Up, You Cool Me Down, Man Alive! in 2020, The OOZ back in 2017 and 6 Feet Beneath the Moon in 2013.
Additionally, he’s revealed he’s hitting the road as part of a tour of the UK from June 11-15. There’s no sign of an Irish show as of yet, but fingers crossed.
Full tour dates:
11 June The 100 Club, London (Rough Trade East London Outstore)
12 June Marble Factory, Bristol (Rough Trade Bristol Outstore)
13 June Invisible Wind Factory, Liverpool (Jacaranda Outstore)
15 June Prizm, Kingston (Banquet Outstore)
