alt-J Remains Untamed In Fourth Album, ‘The Dream’ [Listen/Stream]

alt-J has released their fourth album, The Dream, on all streaming services.

After releasing four album singles, “U&ME,” “Get Better,” “Hard Drive Gold,” and “The Actor,” alt-J has released its swift 12-song collection, The Dream. The album highlights the trio’s unrestrained, expanded sound worked through the past five years since their last original full-length 2017 release, RELAXER.

The album opens with the hissing sound of a can in “Bane,” as deep choral harmonies and echoing percussion lead the listener on a 49-minute open-hearted and reflective listening experience. We finally see the trio – comprised of Joe Newman, Gus Unger-Hamilton, and Thom Sonny Green – personally inject themselves and their psyches into the lyrics of their music. The result showcases an album as real, emotional, and compositionally brilliant as we’ve seen the band yet.

“We’ve been sitting on this album for a long time, dying for you all to hear it. And release day is finally here. It’s a huge privilege for us to still be doing this job, four albums and ten years later. The Dream took us a long time but we think it’s been worth it and we hope you agree. We can’t wait to hear what you think and we hope you love it as much as we do. Thank you and much love from us three,” the band said in a press statement.

Listen to The Dream below and on all streaming platforms here.
