London, England’s Wolf Alice are thrilled to release Blue Lullaby, lullabied versions of select songs from their Mercury Prize-nominated, critically-lauded third record Blue Weekend, today via Dirty Hit/RCA Records. The album was heralded as one of the best albums of 2021 by everyone from Time Magazine to British GQ to The FADER. The companion EP, which features newly-realized, stripped-down versions of songs from Blue Weekend, is nothing short of thrilling; hearing Wolf Alice within a new sonic context allows both their skills and talent to shine, particularly frontwoman Ellie Roswell’s incredible voice.

Says Wolf Alice frontwoman Ellie Roswell about the EP: “‘Blue Lullaby’ came about because we wanted to strip down some of our more emotional songs from ‘Blue Weekend’ and see if they hit any different. We also had a really nice moment during the ‘Blue Weekend’ campaign singing one of our songs with a choir, and we wanted to experience that again with a few other songs, especially as there are a lot of harmonies and a lot of vocal layering on ‘Blue Weekend.’ Hearing multiple voices singing together is an unparalleled feeling to me, so I’m happy we got to record this experience and I hope people enjoy it.”

In addition to the Blue Lullaby version of the song, Wolf Alice recently performed a full band version of “The Last Man on Earth” with a choir and strings on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon; click HERE to watch it.

Wolf Alice are Ellie Rowsell (vocals, guitar), Joff Oddie (guitar, vocals), Theo Ellis (bass), and Joel Amey (drums, vocals). It has been a decade since the band began as a duo of Ellie Rowsell and Joff Oddie, then later expanded to a four-piece, with Joel Amey and Theo Ellis joining the group. Since then, the band saw their 2015 debut album My Love Is Cool soar to #2 on the UK charts, their sophomore album Visions Of A Life won the 2018 Hyundai Mercury prize, and received a GRAMMY nomination for Best Rock Performance. Wolf Alice are also one of only a small handful of artists to be nominated for the Mercury Prize for every single album they’ve released. Blue Weekend continued the band’s stretch of success by debuting at No. 1 on the UK charts on its release and winning the Brit Award for “Best Group” earlier this year.

Wolf Alice have become a beloved, formidable live act in their ten years of existence, having graced the stage of various worldwide festivals including the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury, Coachella, and Governor’s Ball, in addition to selling out shows on multiple continents all over the globe.  They recently announced a fall North American tour whose dates are below. Wolf Alice will also be supporting Harry Styles for a portion of his European tour this summer, in addition to playing at the When We Were Young festival in Las Vegas this October.
