This Is All Yours auf Wikipedia (oder andere Quellen):

This Is All Yours is the second album by English indie rock band alt-J, released on September 22, 2014 through Infectious. It was promoted with four singles: "Hunger of the Pine", "Left Hand Free", "Every Other Freckle", and "Warm Foothills". It topped the UK Albums Chart, was runner up in Belgium, Australia, and Canada and reached #4 in the United States. It was nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Album.

Background and recording

On May 25, 2012, Alt-J released their debut album An Awesome Wave, which won the Mercury Prize in 2012.[2] Alt-J were also nominated for three Brit Awards (British Breakthrough Act, British Album of the Year and British Group of the Year). Bassist Gwil Sainsbury left the band in January 2014.[3] The band began recording the album in April 2014.[4] It was recorded in the same place as An Awesome Wave, Iguana Studios, which Gus Unger-Hamilton described as "a tiny little place, sort of behind a second hand tyre shop".[5]


The majority of the songs on the album were written while touring their debut album, An Awesome Wave, while newer ones such as "Hunger of the Pine" were written in "a really cool little converted Warehouse in Hackney, very cliché East London".[5] Unger-Hamilton said that the "song cycle" of the album is made up of "Arrival in Nara", "Nara" and "Leaving Nara", Nara being a city in Japan.[6] "Hunger of the Pine" was one of the songs written after their bass player Gwil Sainsbury left in January 2014.[6] The song features a sample of "4x4" by Miley Cyrus, of her singing "I'm a female rebel". The sample originally came from a remix Thom Green, Alt-J's drummer, made for Miley Cyrus. Joe Newman said "I was playing the guitar and Thom was responding to what I was doing on Ableton and before we knew it, we'd come up with this really interesting structure, and I came up with lyrics for it quite quickly." Gus Unger-Hamilton said "it sounded cool with what Joe was playing on the guitar." The band asked Miley Cyrus if they could use the sample; according to Newman, she was "cool with it". He said that Miley Cyrus has "been really supportive of us, and she's a fan, I think, which is really nice."[7][8]


On June 9, 2014, the band announced the release of their second album This Is All Yours, as well as putting pre-orders for the album on their website.[9] The album was released on September 22, 2014, as a download, on CD and double vinyl.[10] On June 13, alt-J posted a video on their Instagram account featuring a clip of the first single "Hunger of the Pine".[11] The single premiered on Zane Lowe's show on BBC Radio 1 on June 18. The song was streamed later that day, and released as a single on the iTunes Store the next.[12] "Left Hand Free" was released digitally on 7 July 2014 as the album's second single and impacted modern rock radio on 15 July 2014.[13]

On 13 August 2014, the album's third single, "Every Other Freckle", premiered on Zane Lowe's BBC Radio 1 show once again.

On 9 September 2014, the band released an app that gave access to the album when the user was in select locations.[14]

On 15 September 2014, the band made the album available to listen to on music-streaming platform Spotify.[15]

On 2 March 2015, the band released "Warm Foothills" as the fourth and final single from the album.[16]

The Dream ¦ An Awesome Wave ¦ Live At Red Rocks ¦ This Is All Yours

Alt-J auf Wikipedia (oder andere Quellen):

Alt-J (Eigenschreibweise: alt-J, auch ∆) ist eine britische Alternative-Folk-Band aus Leeds. Ihr bisher größter Erfolg ist der Gewinn des englischen Mercury Prize 2012.


Die Anfänge der Band gehen auf das Jahr 2007 zurück. Damals lernten sich Gwil Sainsbury, Joe Newman, Gus Unger-Hamilton und Thom Green an der Universität Leeds kennen, wo Sainsbury, Newman und Green Kunst und Unger-Hamilton englische Literatur studierten. In ihrem zweiten Studienjahr spielte Newman Sainsbury ein paar seiner Lieder vor, bei denen er von seinem Gitarre spielenden Vater inspiriert wurde. Daraufhin beschlossen die beiden, eine Band zu gründen. Die ersten Aufnahmen entstanden noch in ihren Schlafräumen an der Universität. Nach Green stieß Unger-Hamilton als letzter zur Band, die in den folgenden zwei Jahren zuerst unter dem Namen Daljit Dhaliwal und später als The Films hauptsächlich in Leeds auftrat. Um Verwechslungen mit der amerikanischen Indie-Rock-Band The Films zu vermeiden, nahmen sie dann mit alt-J einen neuen Bandnamen an.[1] Am 1. November 2012 gewann alt-J den renommierten Mercury Prize. Bei den BRIT Awards 2013 war die Band in drei Kategorien nominiert.

Am 11. Februar 2014 verkündeten alt-J auf ihrem offiziellen Twitter-Account, dass Gwil Sainsbury die Band verlassen habe,[2] bekräftigten aber zwei Tage später auf Facebook, dass die Band weiter an ihrem zweiten Album arbeite. Das Album This Is All Yours erschien am 22. September 2014, die Vorab-Single Hunger of the Pine wurde erstmals am 18. Juni im Programm der BBC gespielt.

Im Februar 2022 erschien das vierte Studioalbum The Dream.


Der Bandname ist auf die Tastenkombination zurückzuführen, mit der auf englischen Mac-Tastaturen das Zeichen dargestellt wird, das eine tiefere Bedeutung für die Band hat. Das Delta-Zeichen wird in mathematischen Gleichungen als Symbol für die Differenz verwendet. Die Band bezeichnet sich selbst als Alt-J.

Musikstil und Rezeption

Die Band spielt nach eigenen Angaben Alternative-Pop, der auf Folk-Versen, Synthesizerklängen, Hip-Hop-Synkopierungen und engen Gesangsharmonien beruht.[3] Die britische Tageszeitung The Guardian, in der alt-J am 24. Mai 2012 „Band des Tages“ wurde, bezeichnet die Musik als moderne Fairport Convention.[4]

Das 2014 veröffentlichte Album This Is All Yours erlangte bei dem E-Zine die erste Höchstbewertung von 10/10 seit dem Jahr 2006.
