Alt-J team up with Pusha T and Twin Shadow for surprise performance

They aired a reworked version of 'In Cold Blood' on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert

Alt-J performed ‘In Cold Blood’ last night on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, and brought a couple of collaborators along for a surprise reworking.

The band were joined by Virginia rapper Pusha T and LA-based Twin Shadow for an alternative version of the track. The original is taken from their latest album ‘RELAXER’.

Alt-J were joined by their ‘In Cold Blood’ collaborators for a performance on Colbert.


“We are absolutely thrilled to have done this collaboration with Pusha T and Twin Shadow,” Alt-J said in a press release. “What they have done with our track is inventive, playful, and very forward thinking. We hope you love it as much as we do.”

“I’ve been on festival bills with Alt-J around the world for a few years now,” Pusha T added, “and I was excited to get the call to collaborate with them on this record.”

Meanwhile, Pusha T revealed this week that he was chased by a fox during another recent collaboration. His scary brush with nature occurred when he was recording in rural Wyoming with Kanye West.

The rapper claims that the fox chased him because he was “in their habitat, invading their habitat”.

“I ran. But it kept coming towards me,” he said. Asked if he was scared, Pusha replied: “For sure. I’m not an outdoors person.”
