Wild Beasts make a stylistic pivot on Boy King, the British band’s fifth album and follow-up to 2014’s well-received Present Tense. Teaming up with producer John Congleton, the album was partially born out of writing sessions with Disclosure, and that influence can be seen throughout the record, which is filled with sparkling, slinking, and stuttering synth-rock. We’ve heard a few singles from the album so far — “Get My Bang,” “Big Cat,” “Celestial Creatures,” and “Tough Guy,” and today they’re sharing a full stream of Boy King via Apple Music. If you’re a subscriber, you can listen to it here or below.
