King Krule has delivered his live album and its accompanying film, You Heat Me Up, You Cool Me Down.
Clocking in at an hour and 15 minutes, the 17-track project was recorded during a series of European shows he performed just weeks before the world went into lockdown in 2020. You Heat Me Up, You Cool Me Down features tracks from King Krule’s entire discography, including fan favorites from his debut record like “Easy Easy,” “Baby Blue” and “Out Getting Ribs,” plus cuts from The OOZ and Man Alive!
The accompanying live film was helmed by longtime collaborator and friend, Reuben Bastienne-Lewis, in Amsterdam and Paris and features footage from different performances throughout the years.
“Once spilt into the cheap 4 tracks and pirate software, now collosos energy redeemed into small diaphragms. Sat on toilets imagining the moment other animals would sing the very vibrations back to them. Climbing a ladder of fulfilment, that fullfills neither need or want, but in ascent maybe the organised grouping of heartbeats pounding into the universe for an hour and a half would not be better spent,” King Krule shared in a statement. “I felt comfortable for once, young and uncomfortable with a tunnel of anxiety to walk through.”
