Big year for Patrick Wolf so far: he now has a fiancé, teaser single, official single, and title for his 5th studio album, Lupercalia. Here’s Wolf’s description of “The City” (further proof that he’s picked up from where The Magic Position’s optimism left off):
“The City” saved my life. Living in central London, I woke up one broody morning having booked some studio time. It was a hot summers day and in the midst of the protests against the banks and BBC6 Music closing down. Seeing how the recession had worked its way into peoples relationships and ambitions, I went to my piano and started to fight against the negative by writing in the positive.
