    Music lovers the world over rejoiced last week when King Krule returned with news of a new project.

    But A New Place 2 Drown isn't just an album of music. It's a 208-page book of visual art and text, produced in conjunction with Krule's brother Jack Marshall. It does come with a sonic element (a 37-minute, 12-song soundtrack) and a 10-minute documentary. You can listen to three of the songs now on the album website, but be prepared to hold down your mouse if you plan on hearing a full song.

    So now that one of England's best young songwriters is reintroducing himself, let's remember what we already know about Archy Marshall: the melting pot of influences, the Outkast conflict, and that booming baritone.
