NPR

alt-J have released a new remix of their track "In Cold Blood" by Baauer which you can listen to here.

"We are stunned, humbled and all-round ecstatic to be on this year's Mercury list. RELAXER is an odd, mysterious album, we couldn't be prouder of it, and to have it recognised in this way by a panel of people we respect so much means the world to us." - alt-J
