Sleeplessly embracing
Butterflies and needles
Line my seamed-up join

Encased in case I need it
In my stomach, for my heart
Chain mail

Hunger of the pine

Sleeplessly embracing
Yawn yearns into me

Plenty more tears in the sea

And so you finally use it
Bedding with me you see at night
Your heart wears knight armour

Hunger of the pine

Sleeplessly
Embracing
You

Realisation grew on me
As quickly as it takes your hand
To warm the cool side of the pillow

I'm there for you, be there for me
I'll hum the song the soldiers sing
As they march outside our window

Hunger of the pine

Sleeplessly
Embracing
You

Une immense espérance a traversée la terre
Une immense espérance a traversée ma peur

First listen, I think it's good. An Awesome Wave was a grower for me, so I'm not making any big assumptions yet. Pumped to hear the rest.

I like it a lot, but feel like the sample was unnecessary.. just feels out of place.

On second and third listens, the track flows so much more smoothly than at first. Love it.

Only alt-J could use a Miley Cyrus sample and pull it off. Solid track!

I really like it, seems like losing Gwir didn't obstruct their creative process too much. Great vibes.

Pretty good song. A little less "weird" than most songs on 'An Awesome Wave', but that's not necessarily a bad thing.

Yes, definitely less obscure than a lot of the stuff off AAW, but nevertheless a great track and I actually dig the use of the Miley sample.

I love it. It took me a long time to come around to An Awesome Wave, but once I did, I had it on repeat (and still do). This sounds refined, both in the ways the band would want and in ways that I think will draw in more listeners/critics. And, I actually liked the sample haha. Are there preorders up for this?

Love it, love it, and I had the highest of expectations since An Awesome Wave is in my favorites. I love the sample too, and at first didn't even notice that it was Miley Cyrus.

I really like this, but the sample completely took me out of it. Hope that's not on the actual album track.

It works a lot better at the end of the song, but still meh

Why would you have hope that as a lead single and intro to the new album that the sample wouldn't be on the album version?
