King Krule releases new ‘SHHHHHH!’ EP featuring highly sought-after music

On 9 June 2023, Archy Marshall released Space Heavy, his fourth studio album under his musical alias King Krule. The 15-track full-length was released to critical acclaim with The Guardian describing it as “genre-busting experimentalism”, MOJO as “another mesmerizing, profound, excellent record” while The Times exclaimed “Archy “King Krule” Marshall, one of the most original songwriters of his generation”.

One year on, the South London multi-hyphenate returns to release a new EP titled SHHHHHH! via XL Recordings / Matador. The record features four much-talked-about, highly sought-after tracks—“Achtung”, “All Soup Now”, “Time For Slurp”, “Whaleshark”—that previously were only available via flexi-discs sold during King Krule’s 2023 Shhhhh Tour and will be made available on all digital platforms and to buy on limited gatefold double 7” vinyl for the very first time.

King Krule SHHHHHH

To celebrate the release, King Krule shares a self-directed music video for “Time For Slurp”, a track that quickly became a fan favorite following its debut at the first SHHHHH Tour show in La Marbrerie in Paris (the original flexi-disc is currently listed for £1000 on Discogs). Shot in black and white by Josh Renaut, Archy Marshall and his SHHHH Tour bandmates Ignacio Salvadores (Saxophonist) and George Bass (Drummer) don oars and wade aimlessly through the swamp.

King Krule has been incredibly busy since the release of Space Heavy a year ago. Alongside becoming the face of Daniel Lee’s Burberry Spring/Summer 2024 campaign and featuring in the latest Yardsale drop, King Krule collaborated with Mount Kimbie on “Empty and Silent” from the band’s latest LP, The Sunset Violent.  Immediately after releasing Space Heavy, King Krule embarked on an extensive world tour with long-time band mates Ignacio Salvadores (Saxophonist), George Bass (Drummer), James Wilson (Bass Guitarist), and Jack Towell (Guitarist). The band reunites to perform at 2024 Glastonbury Festival which can be enjoyed by fans on-site or at home with BBC streaming the performance on Friday 27 June.
