Wolf Alice have today announced their 3rd album Blue Weekend, which is set to be released on June 11th via Dirty Hit. This follows on from 2017’s Visions Of A Life which won the Mercury Prize in 2018. The group have also shared new single “The Last Man On Earth” from the upcoming album along with an accompanying music video directed by Jordan Hemingway. Pre-order the new album here.
“It’s about the arrogance of humans,” said Rowsell, explaining the lyrics. “I’d just read Kurt Vonnegut’s Cat’s Cradle and I had written the line ‘Peculiar travel suggestions are dancing lessons from god’ in my notes. But then I thought: ‘Uh, your peculiar travel suggestion isn’t a dancing lesson from god, it’s just a travel suggestion! Why does everything need to mean something more?’”
The new video will premier at 7PM GMT.
Speaking on the new album Roswell said “This album is for other people,”. “Sometimes you hear a song and it makes you feel better, or you hear a song and it makes you feel seen. I remember feeling blue about something, and thinking, ‘I wonder what songs I can listen to that will be about what I’m feeling right now’.”
She continued: “It was almost as if I was desperate to feel better about something, and I would go down any path to feel not alone in something, or to understand it more. And I’ve never really done that before intentionally, I’d never really sought it out.”
