'6 Feet Beneath The Moon' will come out on August 24 - the singer's 19th birthday
Visit Kingkrule.co.uk to listen to the record, which will come out on the Londoner's 19th birthday. King Krule - real name Archy Marshall - recently said that he is "not surprised" Beyoncé is a fan of his songs, saying that he makes "good music".
The US megastar recently highlighted King Krule 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, Marshall said: "It doesn't surprise me. I think my music's good."
Elsewhere in the interview, Marshall said that '6 Feet Beneath The Moon' 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."
The teenager will be releasing the album on XL Recordings. 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. The album was produced by Rodaidh McDonald (The xx, Savages, Daughter).
