King Krule is back with “If Only It Was Warmth,” the second preview of his forthcoming June album, Space Heavy.
The track’s simplistic, minimal instrumentation allows for King Krule’s deep, brooding voice to really shine, taking on emotional concepts like love and loss. The accompanying black-and-white music video shows the artist symbolically traversing expansive waters with a cactus. Watch the self-directed visual below.
Space Heavy is a reflection of thoughts that King Krule, real name Archy Marshall, experienced during his commutes between Liverpool and London from 2020 to 2022. He became wrapped up in the idea of space, and how it affected love and connection during peak pandemic times. The follow-up to 2020’s Man Alive! is out June 9th, and pre-orders are ongoing. Also check out his previously single, “Seaforth.”
King Krule will embark on an extensive supporting tour throughout the US as well as Europe and the UK.
