2022 will be the year of the return of the alt-J! It will be out on February 11 “The Dream”, their new studio album, the fourth, ideal follow-up to “Relaxer”, released in 2017.
“The Dream” promises to be a project made of intrigue and humanity. On the disc beauty and darkness they intertwine continuously, ranging from the most intimate moments of the band to stories inspired by thrillers, Hollywood tales and the famous Chateau Marmont.
It’s an album that took shape during the pandemic, but it does not necessarily follow. “The pandemic gave me a new sense of responsibility as an author – revealed Newman about “Get Better”, single anticipating “The Dream” – even if the events described are not real, I believe, or at least I hope, that this is the most authentic and true song I have ever written. “
His words are echoed by those of Unger-Hamilton, who remembers his reaction after listening to the demo: “When Joe first played it for me I burst into tears. It was a long cry.”
The alt-J will present live “The Dream” and the other songs that have marked their career during the 2022 tour that will also take them in Italy. The London trio will perform on June 17, 2022 at the Cavea Auditorium Parco della Musica in Rome and the June 18 at the Port of Bari.
