Wolf Alice have dropped their ethereal new single 'Heavenward' as they gear up to launch their eagerly anticipated second studio album 'Visions Of A Life'. It will be the first track from the record, and it's certainly an excellent start to what's coming.
The London four-piece released 'Heavenward' this month and it soon became the Zane Lowe World Record on his Beats 1 radio show. 'Visions of a Life' will be released on September 19th 2017 through Dirty Hit and RCA Records.
It follows their 2015 debut album 'My Love Is Cool', which was nominated for the Mercury Prize and reached number 2 in the UK charts. It featured the popular singles 'Giant Peach', 'Bros' and 'You're a Germ'. Last year they were nominated for a Grammy for their performance of 2014's 'Moaning Lisa Smile' from their 'Creature Songs' EP, and they also won two NME Awards and an iTunes Award.
The band; who are Ellie Rowsell, Joff Oddie, Joel Amey and Theo Ellis; will be going on tour across North American in December, beginning at Danforth Music Hall in Toronto on December 1st, appearing across Montreal, Brooklyn, Rhode Island, Washington DC and Philadelphia before concluding at Terminal West in Atlanta on December 11th.
