alt-J are set to drop another new track, ‘Hard Drive Gold’, this week

It's about "the hysterical nature of cryptocurrencies" and features Gus Unger-Hamilton's mum, apparently.

alt-J are set to share another track from their upcoming album.

The trio will release their fourth album ‘The Dream’ on 11th February 2022 via Infectious Music / BMG. The follow up to 2017’s much-lauded third full-length ‘RELAXER’, they’ve already shared debut taster ‘U&ME’, and ‘Get Better’.

They’re set to follow that up on Wednesday with ‘Hard Drive Gold’, track three from the album. In a press release for ‘The Dream’ released last year, it’s described as a “tongue-in-cheek” track about “the hysterical nature of cryptocurrencies”, featuring both vocalist and guitarist Joe Newman yelping “Don’t be afraid to make money, boy”, and an appearance from Gus Unger-Hamilton’s mum, delivered via WhatsApp. Newman describes it as “a little bit like a ‘Left Hand Free’ type of song”, ‘FYI’.
