Alt-J have posted the video for their recent single from their new album ‘This Is All Yours’ online.
The clip of ‘Hunger Of The Pine’, which you can watch below, shows a man being constantly hit by mysterious bow-hunters as he runs through a forest. It is directed by Nabil Elderkin, who has previously shot videos for Kanye West, Frank Ocean and The Black Eyed Peas.
The track, which dropped last month, features a sample of Miley Cyrus’ vocal from her ‘Bangerz’ album song ‘4×4’. It was the first track to be taken from the band’s new album ‘This Is All Yours’, the follow-up to their Mercury Prize-winning debut record, ‘An Awesome Wave’. The title track was also posted by the band earlier this month.
The album will be released on September 22 and is their first release since the departure of band member Gwil Sainsbury, who announced he was leaving the group earlier this year.
It will coincide with a short UK tour that includes sold-out shows at Alexandra Palace in London, The Academy in Glasgow and the O2 Apollo, Manchester.

Glasgow O2 Academy (September 18)
Manchester Apollo (19-20)
Wolverhampton Civic Hall (22)
Brighton Centre (23)
London Alexandra Palace (24)
Dublin O2 Arena (27)
