Southend’s least classifiable musicians have unveiled a brand new track over the airwaves.

These New Puritans were in session for Zane Lowe’s show on BBC Radio 1 last night, and took the opportunity to play ‘It’s Risen’ for the first time, a song so fresh they’ve not even finished writing it.

Last month FACT’s Chal Ravens spoke to the band about their astonishing new album, Field Of Reeds – which we picked as one of the best of the last quarter – and asked frontman Jack Barnett about playing a magnetic piano and bringing a hawk into the studio.

You can listen to the whole session from 59:57 on BBC iPlayer, or stream a radio rip of ‘It’s Risen’ below.
