Listen: Wolf Alice return! Hear ‘Yuk Foo’ from new album ‘Visions Of A Life’

Wolf Alice return! Hear ‘Yuk Foo’ from new album ‘Visions Of A Life’

The band’s new album arrives in September, and will be supported by a huge UK/European tour.

Almost exactly two years after their debut album was released, Wolf Alice are back! The band have been teasing new single ‘Yuk Foo’ for a while now, and the track’s now been shared, along with details of their upcoming second album.

The follow-up to ‘My Love Is Cool’ will be called ‘Visions Of A Life’ and is coming out on 29th September via Dirty Hit. ‘Yuk Foo’ is a vicious, uncompromising return that barely scrapes above the two-minute mark. “I don’t give a shit,” Ellie Rowsell yells, and it’s the sign of the scrappy, brilliant punk band we always knew lay within Wolf Alice come to the surface.

The album’s release will be followed by the band’s biggest UK/European tour to date, taking in a show at London’s cavernous Alexandra Palace in November, their biggest headline show to date. A US tour precedes the album’s release in July.

Talking about the new single in a press release, vocalist Ellie says: “We wanted to make it open to interpretation, so that anyone who was frustrated at something could have it as their anthem.”

Saying the track is inspired by “being sick and fed up of certain expectations… for me a lot of it is about being a young woman. Even the shit, everyday wolf-whistle thing. As I get older, I feel like ‘Why have I always put up with that?’ When I sing that kind of song, it’s everything that I want to do when that happens.”
