A video has appeared online featuring a 14-year-old King Krule that reveals the young Londoner's ambition to perform at Glastonbury.

As reported by Noisey, the short clip was filmed as part of Krule's entry into the Glastonbury unsigned artists competition of 2008. As well as an interview, it features short snippets of the singer and guitarist performing. Scroll down to view the video.

"Glastonbury's a big occasion. It's like famous and that," asserted the young Krule. "To even be a part of it, even get here, that's pretty good."

Krule – real name Archy Marshall – released his debut album '6 Feet Beneath the Moon' last year having already performed on the Park Stage at Glastonbury 2013. According to Krul, the album contains songs he'd been working on since age 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," he said in advance of the album's release. "So I wanted to cut it off at a very clear date of 19 years. That seemed the easiest way of doing it."

Earlier this year, Krule appeared on US hardcore band Trash Talk's new album 'No Peace'.
