The reign of trip-hop artist King Krule will continue with his forthcoming LP, The Ooz, and the English singer-songwriter has shared the latest single from the Oct. 13 release. Titled "Half Man Half Shark," Krule uses his blues and punk roots to create a five-minute blast of sound.
The 23-year-old released the song with an accompanying video, in which he turns back the clock with a VHS recording and gets help from animator Theo Chin. The video has Krule performing in several intimate venues as Chin's animation plays on a loop in the center of the screen. Check out the hypnotizing video above.
The Ooz will be Krule's third studio album and first since 2015's A New Place 2 Drown. His debut studio effort, 6 Feet Beneath the Moon, peaked at No. 65 on the UK Official Charts Company and No. 60 on the Sweden Top List. "Half Man Half Shark" is the third single from the upcoming album, preceded by "Dum Surfer" and the lead single, "Czech One."
King Krule will hop across the pond later this month for a run of North American shows. Check out the complete list of tour dates below and snag tickets to an upcoming show on AXS.com.
