Today (August 15) Wolf Alice announce the release of Beautifully Unconventional, the latest single from their forthcoming album Visions Of A Life.
The track arrives as the group embark on an intimate UK tour, with a larger run - including a headline show at London’s Alexandra Palace - to come in November. Click below to hear the track.
“I wrote it about one of my friends,” says singer and guitarist Ellie Rowsell. “My feelings towards her reminded me of the film Heathers, where everyone is a Heather and you find your other non-Heather… a ‘you can be my partner in crime’, sorta thing.”
Visions Of A Life, featuring previous singles Yuk Foo and Don’t Don’t Delete The Kisses, is out on September 29. It is the follow-up to 2015 debut My Love Is Cool, which peaked at No.2 and has sold 106,358 copies to date, according to the Official Charts Company.
Back in June, Wolf Alice’s manager, East City Management founder Stephen Taverner, told Music Week the upcoming record is “a monster”. "It’s a huge commercial rock record, that’s the only way I can describe it,” he said.
The album will be released through Dirty Hit via digital, CD and limited edition white vinyl formats and is available to pre-order now.
