King Krule has announced the release details of his new album 'Man Alive!'

It'll be his third studio album, and is set for release on 21st February. The news comes alongside a self-directed video for ‘(Don’t Let The Dragon) Draag On’ that - according to a press statement - "pulls influences from Carl Theodor Dreyer’s classic The Passion of Joan of Arc". So there we go.

The title of the record, according to Archy Marshall, is “an exclamation, about the times we live in. Like, ‘Fucking hell, man!’”

“More and more,” he explains, “I've been put off by the intention of speaking about what's going on in society as a black-and-white thing, or trying to get to the bottom of why we’re in this position. So the album is mostly made up of snapshots and observations. There are a lot of real-time-and-place moments, songs talking about walking through the park just over there and getting a head injury, then there are other tracks which are just simplicity, looking at one particular situation and reflecting on it as somehow being super-profound.”

King Krule is set to head out on tour this March and April. You can check out the dates after the jump.
