Wolf Alice are back with a brand new album ‘Visions Of A Life’ – check out first track ‘Yuk Foo’ now

There's a huge tour on the way too!
They’re back!

Wolf Alice have returned with their brand new single ‘Yuk Foo’, and they’re not done there.

The track, which just got a first spin on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show as her hottest record, comes along with news of the follow-up to their wildly successful debut album ‘My Love Is Cool’. Titled ‘Visions Of A Life’, their second full-length will drop on 29th September via Dirty Hit.

Speaking about ‘Yuk Foo’, vocalist Ellie Rowsell explains: “We wanted to make it open to interpretation, so that anyone who was frustrated at something could have it as their anthem.”

“For me, a lot of it is about being a young woman,” she continues. “Even the shit, everyday wolf-whistle thing. As I get older, I feel like ‘Why have I always put up with that?’ When I sing that kind of song, it’s everything that I want to do when that happens.”

A press release gives us a bit more info about the full-length. Recorded with Paramore and Beck producer Justin Meldal-Johnsen, and mixed by Tom Elmhirst (David Bowie, Arcade Fire, Adele), it has pedigree. Described as “fundamentally a personal album,” opener ‘Heavenward’ is “a cloudburst of shoegazy guitar and vaulting vocals”, while the closing title-track is an “epic, eight-minute” effort.

‘Yuk Foo’, meanwhile, is an in-your-face assault that does exactly what you’d expect from that title. You can check out our review here, or check it out below.
