Ahead of their new album Reduxer which comes out on the 28th of September, alt-J have just released In Cold Blood (feat. Kontra K) (Kontra K Version), the latest new track to be lifted from their forthcoming Reduxer project. The new version of the song is a collaboration between the band and Berlin powerhouse Kontra K, Germany’s biggest rap star with three #1 albums under his belt.
“We are very excited to share Kontra K’s version of In Cold Blood with you,” say alt-J. “We love what he has done with the track and really hope everyone else enjoys it as much as we do!”
“I wanted to try something new and step out of my comfort zone!” says Kontra K of the track. “alt-J are a great band with a strong sound. It was a successful experiment and we came out with a powerful track!”
