Jungle: ‘We’d love to work with Chance The Rapper and Earl Sweatshirt’

The band release their self-titled debut album on July 14

Jungle have revealed that they would love to work with Chance The Rapper and Earl Sweatshirt.

The band, who release their self-titled debut album on July 14, tell NME that they didn’t want to work with anyone else on their debut LP because they wanted the focus of the record to be on them.

“We didn’t do collaborations on the album because we wanted that record to be about us, but now it’s something we’re definitely ready to explore,” singer Josh Lloyd-Watson says. “We’d love to work with Chance the Rapper – he’s just one of the biggest talents out there at the minute. And we’ve run into Earl Sweatshirt at a couple of festivals, and I think there’s a mutual love there, so we’d love to do something with him too.”


‘Jungle’ was recorded between the band’s own home studio in Shepherd’s Bush, London and the XL Recordings studio in nearby Ladbroke Grove.

The ‘Jungle’ tracklist is:

‘The Heat’
‘Busy Earnin”
‘Smoking Pixels’
‘Son Of A Gun’
‘Lucky I Got What I Want’
‘Lemonade Lake’

The band tour the UK later this year and will also perform at Latitude and Reading and Leeds festivals. Jungle will play:

Manchester Ritz (24)
Glasgow Arches (25)
Birmingham Institute (27)
Cambridge Junction (28)
