Alt-J are set to release their third studio album titled Relaxer on June 2, 2017. The band formed only 10 years ago in 2007 in Leeds, England, where they rose to fame with the release of their first album titled An Awesome Wave. They achieved unparalleled success with the release of Tessellate, Breezeblocks, and Matilda/Fitzpleasure. On the release of their second album in 2014 called This Is All Yours, Alt-J rose to fame worldwide with Every Other Freckle, Left Hand Free, and Hunger of the Pine, among other hits.

With their unique sound and powerful lyrics, the upcoming album from Alt-J should be nothing less than epic. So far, we know that there will be 8 tracks on the album, including two of the newly released songs 3WW and In Cold Blood. The newest songs, released in early and late March, show that the indie band are always willing to take more risks in terms of sound and meaning in order to diversify and progress their music.
