Alt-J post studio picture ahead of third album

Speculation rife that trio could be working on a new record

Alt-J appear to be back in the studio, uploading a photo of themselves back together ahead of a possible third album.

Drummer Thom Sonny Green recently provided an update on the progress of the band’s next record, saying they had “lots of ideas” for their third LP.

The band followed their Mercury Prize-winning 2012 debut ‘An Awesome Wave’ with ‘This Is All Yours’ in 2014. Green released a solo record titled ‘High Anxiety’ in August.

Alt-J uploaded a photo of themselves with their gear to Instagram on Monday (October 10). It followed a similar picture a month ago of them unloading their instruments from a truck. See both photos below.

The images have sparked speculation that the band could be working on a new record.

Speaking to NME a few months back, Green confirmed that, despite his solo ventures, Alt-J are “by no means” over.

“[We’re] very excited about it, I think it’s going to be pretty interesting,” Green said of their next record. “I feel like it’ll be different, but I don’t know. It’s funny that we write together so well and it comes pretty naturally and pretty quick.”

Pressed on what the album might sound like, Green replied: “I can’t predict it. You know, we write what we feel.”

He also stated that he has “no idea” when the album might be released and that recording hasn’t started yet.

Speaking to DIY, Green said on the topic of Alt-J’s next album: “All we ever want to do is write interesting things, so we might write an entire album with an acoustic guitar and a tambourine. We’ll see.”
