Debut Album Out July 15 on XL Recordings
Today London-based collective Jungle has premiered a brand new album track called "Time". The track is taken from Jungle's forthcoming eponymous debut album, which will be released on July 15 (July 14 UK) on XL Recordings, and is set to be one of the year's most anticipated records.
Listen to "Time" right now HERE. You can also tune into KEXP or WXPN to hear the track on the radio.
Jungle is based around a core musical duo of lifelong friends known simply as 'J' and 'T', who make kaleidoscopic modern soul. Rolling Stone praised the groups "British, blue-eyed take on the sunnier side of alt-R&B" that's unmistakably born in the UK but has true global appeal (their"Platoon" video has already racked up more than 4.5 million views). Their album was recorded between J's bedroom in Shepherds Bush, London and the XL Recordings studio in nearby Ladbroke Grove.
Meanwhile, Jungle will return to North America for their first headline tour in the country. The group, who expand to a thrilling five piece live, will perform in NYC at their third sold-outshow this years, as well as San Francisco for a sold-out show at The Independent on June 7; the day after they kick off their tour on June 6 at The El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles. The group will come back in August to perform at Lollapalooza in which the New York Times explains, in their preview of the festival: "British electro-soul collective Jungle makes a rare appearance and should not be missed."
