Villagers are set to return to their stunning debut single, Becoming a Jackal, on 14th February 2011 (available digitally, RUG362D2). Taken from their Mercury nominated debut album of the same name, Becoming a Jackal is an infectious, heart-wrenching, melodic piece, full of lyrical finesse. You can watch Conor J. O’Brien’s standout performance of the track at this year’s Mercury’s by clicking here
