Last week, it was announced that Haim will top the bill at All Points East 2023 on August 28. The series previously confirmed the Stormzy-curated ‘This Is What We Mean Day’, as well as a huge gig from The Strokes who’ll be joined by Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
Jungle released their third and most recent studio album, ‘Loving In Stereo’, back in 2021. Last year saw the pair return with two new tracks – ‘Good Times’ and ‘Problemz’ – and reveal that they’d started work on their next record.
During an interview with NME in 2021, Jungle talked about the free attitude they applied to their latest full-length effort, which was celebrated for them “letting loose” more.
“The older we get, the more we stop giving a fuck,” Lloyd-Watson told NME.
“The more you can release your fears of what you think you can be or what you can do, you’re just in this creative freedom. It’s why Jungle is reaching where it is and why, in our view, Jungle is reaching its creative pinnacle.”
