Last week, the British trio alt-J announced that they’d follow up their massively successful and Mercury Prize-winning debut An Awesome Wave with the new album This Is All Yours later this year. They’ve now shared “Hunger Of The Pine,” the first song we’ve heard from the album. It’s an eerie, still, atmospheric song that explodes its own effect when it includes a sample of Miley Cyrus singing “I’m A Female Rebel.” Seriously, when that sample comes in, you might think you accidentally left music playing in a different tab. It’s an interesting and effective song, and you can hear it below.

This Is All Yours is out 9/23 on Canvasback/Infectious.
