WOLF ALICE RELEASE
BLUE LULLABY EP
Wolf Alice are thrilled to release Blue Lullaby, lullaby versions of select songs from their UK Number #1, Mercury-prize nominated third album Blue Weekend. The companion EP, which features stripped-down versions of songs from Blue Weekend, arrives off the back of the band’s recent triumphant return to Australian stages, playing a headline East Coast tour and Groovin The Moo across April – May. Wolf Alice will be supporting Harry Styles on select dates in Europe throughout June and July, as well as playing headline shows and various festivals across the summer including Glastonbury, Reading Festival, Leeds, Firefly & more – all dates HERE.
Going into more detail on Blue Lullaby, Ellie Rowsell says: “Blue Lullaby came about because we wanted to strip down some of our more emotional songs from Blue Weekend and see if they hit any different. We also had a really nice moment during the Blue Weekend campaign singing one of our songs with a choir and we wanted to experience that again with a few other songs, especially as there are a lot of harmonies and a lot of vocal layering on Blue Weekend. Hearing multiple voices singing together is an unparalleled feeling to me so I’m happy we got to record this experience and I hope people enjoy it.”
In addition to the Blue Lullaby version of the song, Wolf Alice recently performed a full band version of ‘The Last Man on Earth’ with a choir and strings on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. The band were also invited to triple j’s Like A Version while they were in AUS – where they performed their hit ‘How Can I Make It Ok?’ and an incredible rendition of King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard’s ‘Sense’.
Following the year anniversary of Blue Weekend, Wolf Alice recently premiering the full album film. Directed by Jordan Hemingway (Gucci, Saint Laurent), the film follows the narrative story of Blue Weekend – all official music videos weaved together documenting one weird and wonderful night.
Wolf Alice are Ellie Rowsell (vocals, guitar), Joff Oddie (guitar, vocals), Theo Ellis (bass) and Joel Amey (drums, vocals). It has been a decade since the band began as a duo of Ellie Rowsell and Joff Oddie, then later expanding to a four-piece, with Joel Amey and Theo Ellis joining the group. Since then, the band saw their 2015 debut album My Love Is Cool soar to #2 on the UK charts, their sophomore album Visions Of A Life win the 2018 Hyundai Mercury prize, and received a GRAMMY nomination for Best Rock Performance. Wolf Alice are also one of only a small handful of artists to be nominated for the Mercury Prize for every single album they’ve released. Blue Weekend continued the band’s stretch of success by debuting at No. 1 on the UK charts on its release, and winning the Brit Award for “Best Group” earlier this year.
