King Krule Announces First Album in Three Years, Releases Lead Single “Seaforth”

Few artists have had a more ambitious last 10 years than King Krule, the stage name of English singer/songwriter Archy Marshall. Since releasing his debut LP 6 Feet Beneath the Moon in 2013, Marshall has been on an incredible trajectory, making some of the most-likable jazz-infused post-punk of the 21st century. His triumphant sophomore album, The OOZ, wowed the masses in 2017 and remains one of the very best records of the 2010s.

Just a few weeks after selling some flexi-discs of new material at shows, Marshall is back with new music, his first record since 2020’s Man Alive!. The forthcoming Space Heavy is due to arrive on June 9 from Matador Records. Lead single “Seaforth” is a slow-burning, woozy, mathematical slice of slacker avant-garde. On the track, Marshall is contemplating the disintegration of the planet while in the company of someone else. “I see you, the same eyes / Reflect the world that falls apart / There’s a fire in my heart / ‘Cause this faith is far, I heard,” he sings, while the backing vocals echo “Baby, this faith is all I have” right back at him. “Seaforth” signals a new chapter for King Krule, through one of his most-compelling tracks in recent memory.
