The British indie rockers debuted the song -- which samples Miley's Bangerz track "4x4" -- on Zane Lowe's BBC Radio 1 show.
"The Hunger of the Pine" is the first offering from Alt-J's sophomore album, This Is All Yours.
Keyboardist Gus Unger-Hamilton tells Lowe it was one of the last songs they put together for the record, explaining that it was one of many ideas they had been kicking around over the past two years while they toured behind their Mercury Prize-winning debut, An Awesome Wave.
Miley seems to be a fan of what they came up with. She retweeted a link to the song once the band put it up on SoundCloud.
