Alt-J have unveiled the video for In Cold Blood, the first single to be taken from their third studio album.

The Casper Balsley-directed piece is narrated by none other by Iggy Pop, who takes on the role of David Attenborough and educates us on the humble wood mouse.

Watch it here: 

It follows the a day-in-the-life of the tiny creature, which becomes increasingly more gruesome and sinister as it goes on. 

In Cold Blood is the first single to to be taken from Alt-J's Relaxer album- which follows 2012's An Awesome Wave and 2014's This Is All Yours.

Meanwhile, the band have also confirmed a date at The O2 London on 16 June to celebrate the venue's 10th anniversary.

Alt-J said of the news: "The O2 is a huge, cool venue and we are excited to be helping to mark its tenth birthday. It was a very special night the first time we played there, and we're looking forward to going back for seconds.
