London singer-songwriter Patrick Wolf has announced his return to music with an upcoming comeback single, ‘Enter The Day’.
The news is set to lead toward Wolf’s first release since his sixth album, ‘Sundark and Riverlight’, arrived back in 2012. The musician has remained active on the tour circuit during his hiatus, for which he cites general burnout and management issues, but has not shared any new material in over a decade.
“‘Enter The Day’ is the first song from a forthcoming EP I finished in October,” he has surprise-announced via social media. “This is a song I chose, not so much as a first single but a song to accompany you over the winter ahead, and the last song I wrote for the story I’ll tell you soon that was missing its ending.”
Wolf continues: “On my debut EP, released 20 years ago to the date of this Friday I yearned for ‘total chaos’ and accidentally my reply these years later came as a hoping for ‘the golden mean’, a philosophy of Aristotle’s where life is at its most thriving and beautiful in the middle of two extremes, no longer perilous in the extremities.”
The track is set to arrive this Friday, November 11th, on the 20th anniversary of his debut EP’s original release. It will be delivered on Wolf’s own label, ARPORT, and comes in advance of a new EP, the release date of which is currently unconfirmed.
