After two feverishly received albums as King Krule, plus another low-key outing under his own name, this extraordinarily gifted 25-year-old from Peckham in South London adds further depth and substance to his oeuvre with another wondrous long-player called ‘Man Alive!’. It arrives packed full of his trademark sonic ambition and compositional skill, as well as the now-familiar corrosive lyricism and lurid social observation.

+ ‘Man Alive!’ will be available on limited edition white 12” vinyl and an indie white edition with bonus transparent red flexi disc including the ‘Hey World!’ version of 'Perfecto Miserable' track.

In an accompanying video, his first foray into directing, Archy Marshall’s long-time love of cinema seeps, pulling influences from Carl Theodor Dreyer’s classic The Passion of Joan of Arc while still creating a typically wry King Krule visual.

"What lies in wait is the dark, harsh truth. King Krule is one of the few artists ready to stare it in the eye." - 8/10
 
"The lanky London outlaw with cement-mixer lungs delivers his most anguished album yet, in which impending fatherhood collides with his habitual torments." - 7.7
 
'Stirring, dreamy optimism. Swims languorously with romance and tenderness, deftly pulling sonics from jazz, post-punk, soul and dubstep." - ★★★★
