Alt-J have released a new song called 'Hunger Of The Pine', which features a sample of Miley Cyrus' vocal from her 'Bangerz' album song '4x4'. Bet you didn’t see that one coming.

'Hunger Of The Pine' is lifted from the band’s forthcoming new album 'This Is All Yours', which will be their first release since the departure of band member Gwil Sainsbury, who announced he was leaving the group earlier this year.

Here are the song’s lyrics:

"Sleeplessly embracing
Butterflies and needles
Line my seamed-up join

Encased in case I need it
In my stomach, for my heart
Chain mail

Hunger of the pine

Sleeplessly embracing
Yawn yearns into me
Plenty more tears in the sea

And so you finally use it
Bedding with me you see at night
Your heart wears knight armour

Hunger of the pine

Sleeplessly
Embracing
You

Realisation grew on me
As quickly as it takes your hand
To warm the cool side of the pillow

I'm there for you, be there for me
I'll hum the song the soldiers sing
As they march outside our window

Hunger of the pine

Sleeplessly
Embracing
You

Une immense espérance a traversée la terre
Une immense espérance a traversée ma peur"
