Wolf Alice - Blue Weekend Test Pressing Giveaway
Blue Weekend is the highly anticipated third album from Wolf Alice, currently available on CD, vinyl and transparent red gatefold vinyl from Townsend Music. Pre-order any version of the album to be in with a chance to win a test pressing signed by the band.
Blue Weekend, set for release on 4th June, is the follow-up to the band’s 2017 Mercury Prize-winning album Visions of a Life. Personal storytelling is at the core of Blue Weekend, an album that sees Wolf Alice embrace a newfound boldness and vulnerability in equal measure. During an interview with NME, the band revealed that the title for the record came from a taxi ride when recording the album. Vocalist/guitarist Ellie Rowsell suggested to drummer Joel Amey that the band should head to a nearby forest for a day out “on the next blue weekend”. “And I often think the weekend is so fun," Rowsell told NME "but lots of drama takes place then so sometimes it’s the catalyst for your downfall.”
The first two tracks revealed from the album have cranked anticipation for the release to fever pitch with accompanying Jordan Hemingway-directed videos. When Wolf Alice dropped 'The Last Man On Earth' in February, Blinded By The Floodlights described the song as "a stunning vocal performance from Ellie Rowsell on a beautiful track which is a gigantic departure from them!"
“Blue is a nice colour, but it also means sad,” - Ellie Rowsell
'The Last Man On Earth' was followed by the incendiary 'Smile', which Ellie informed Annie Mac is "about people that make assumptions about you." This bodes well for the track's live outings on the band's planned January 2022 tour. "I miss that feeling of singing on stage. It’s like screaming into a pillow or something — you can get away with being more nasty." says Ellie.
"Like many great bands before them, @wolfalicemusic have come into their own with a third album that's confident, unapologetic and definitively them." - @NME
