Following a Summer packed full of festival appearances, Patrick Wolf will release a brand new EP on November 28. Entitled ‘Brumalia’ (the Roman Winter celebration) The EP will feature 6 new tracks and will be lead by new album favourite, ‘Together’.
“‘Together’ has been the highlight of the live shows over the last year, the audience reaction to this song has been totally inspiring, I always saw it as a song about two lovers reuniting in the dark rainy days around December. For the last few years I’ve been writing a song around Christmas time, creating this Winter EP.‘Brumalia’ (which translates as ‘festival of the shortest day’), in a way is like a little brother or sister record to ‘Lupercalia'”
The new songs on this EP were written over the last year, produced and programmed by Patrick this Autumn in London, returning to The Pool studios on Bermondsey Street and his home studio. It also features a song made on the iPad while travelling through the swamps of Florida on a writing trip.
“The artwork for the EP was shot by Patti Smith. These are two photos Patti took of me on Cooden Beach on a freezing windy Winter day earlier this year the day after I played harp and viola for her at the De La Warr Pavilion. To me the photos sum up the bleakness and melancholy of England in the Winter months, which was something that inspired the choice of songs on this EP.”
