Wolf Alice appeared on Later… with Jools Holland last night (Friday 5th March), performing their brand new track ‘The Last Man On Earth’.
Recorded at the restored Alexandra Palace Theatre in North London, the four piece were backed by a string section in a stirring version of the first track to arrive from forthcoming album ‘Blue Weekend’.
You can watch the performance below.
Speaking about ‘The Last Man On Earth’ on its release, singer and guitarist Ellie Rowsell explains: “It’s about the arrogance of humans. I’d just read Kurt Vonnegut’s Cat’s Cradle and I had written the line ‘Peculiar travel suggestions are dancing lessons from god’ in my notes. But then I thought: ‘Uh, your peculiar travel suggestion isn’t a dancing lesson from god, it’s just a travel suggestion! Why does everything need to mean something more?’”
Described by guitarist Joff Oddie as “the best songs Ellie’s ever written”, ‘Blue Weekend’ is set for release on 11th June via Dirty Hit.
