Patrick Wolf details new album Lupercalia

    It’s a little strange Patrick Wolf doesn’t have more recognition in the States. He’s on his fifth album, is widely revered by critics, and opened for those Suburbs guys that won all the Grammys. Plus, according to Clash Music, Lady Gaga is now a fan: “I’m really into an artist right now named Patrick Wolf. I think you would really love him — really fantastic, amazing, from the U.K.”

    Now might be his moment; Wolf has a new album coming out called Lupercalia, for which Clash Music reports he has recently revealed the tracklisting. Songs include the singles “Time of My Life” and “The City” (out next month), as well as titles like “Slow Motion”, “Bermondsey Street”, “The Future”, “Armistice”, and “William”, which we’ll go ahead and boldly assume is about his fiancé. It was also reported in 2009 Wolf would have Groove Armada and Tilda Swinton on the album, the latter of whom also appeared on Wolf’s previous album, The Bachelor.

    According to Clash, Wolf worked with “a number of guest artists” and self-produced the effort, which he recorded in Europe and the United States at nine different studios. Among the guest artists are a choir and a full orchestra, arranged by Fiona Brice.
