Patrick Wolf has unveiled the brand new cover art for the new album ‘Lupercalia’ which will be released on May 30.
The tracklisting is as follows:
‘Time Of My LIfe’
‘Lupercalia’ is already being hailed as his best work to date. An unusual array of instruments emerge; the duduk, cristal bachet, glass harmonica and ondes martenot all combine with orchestral woodwind, brass, choral and string sections recorded at the legendary Air Studios to produce a body of work that sounds like the album Wolf has been waiting all his life to make.
Speaking in a recent interview, Wolf explains how the lyrics to this album are “hugely confessional” Having found both love and a related sense of deep fulfillment last year, “Lupercalia” records this continuing journey of discovery and the newly found redemptive feelings he has been experiencing. It seems that a refreshed outlook on life and a profound optimism has propelled him to new creative heights, contradicting the view that abject suffering always makes the best art.
