London, England’s Wolf Alice are thrilled to announce Blue Lullaby, lullabied versions of select songs from their Mercury Prize-nominated, critically-lauded third record Blue Weekend. The companion EP, which features stripped down versions of songs from Blue Weekend, will be released on June 24, 2022 via RCA Records. Blue Lullaby’s first song, a stunning piano-and-choir version of “The Last Man On Earth,” is available to hear now.
Says Wolf Alice front woman Ellie Roswell about the band’s forthcoming 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.
