King Krule has said that he is "not surprised" Beyoncé is a fan of his songs, saying that he makes "good music".

The US megastar recently highlighted the 19 year- old singer from London on her Facebook page, posting a link to his song 'Easy Easy' and recommending it to her fans. Asked by MTV how he felt about discovering one of the most successful artists in the world is listening to his songs, King Krule said: "It doesn't surprise me. I think my music's good."

Elsewhere in the interview, the singer-songwriter (real name Archy Marshall) said that his debut album '6 Feet Beneath The Moon', released in August, encapsulates his life as a songwriter so far and includes songs he wrote seven years ago when he was 12. "I feel that the album is a very self-centered record, so I wanted to make it apparent that I'd been working on it throughout my life and it had aspects from when I was really young — from my birth — until now," Krule said. "So I wanted to cut it off at a very clear date of 19 years. That seemed the easiest way of doing it."

The deep voiced teenager has signed to XL Recordings and will release the album on August 24. Included on the 14 track release will be tracks including 'Easy Easy', 'Ocean Bed' and 'Out Getting Ribs', a song originally released when the singer was called Zoo Kid. Produced by Rodaidh McDonald (The xx, Savages, Daughter) '6 Feet Beneath The Moon' will be released on King Krule, aka Archy Marshall,'s 19th birthday.

King Krule will also perform at this year's Wilderness Festival alongside headliners Empire Of The Sun.

Noah And The Whale, Tom Odell, Melody's Echo Chamber, Ghostpoet, Lucy Rose and Michael Kiwanuka have also been confirmed for the four-day bash, which takes place from August 8-11 at Cornbury Park near Charlbury, Oxfordshire.
