Wolf Alice release ‘Formidable Cool’, the latest single from the band’s acclaimed second album ‘Visions Of A Life’ – and you can listen to it now on the Shoot Music – New Releases Playlist.
The single – which is also a new addition to the Fantasy Premier League and Soccer AM: New Music playlists – is a growling cautionary tale in falling for a manipulative lover and is launched following nominations for Best British Band at the BRIT Awards.
‘Visions Of A Life’ – a fundamentally a personal album which features previous singles ‘Don’t Delete the Kisses‘, ‘Yuk Foo‘, and ‘Beautifully Unconventional‘ – debuted in the UK charts at number two and was named in the top three best albums of 2017 by NME, Q and Drowned in Sound.
Available via Dirty Hit, it is the follow up to Wolf Alice’s 2015 Gold-selling debut album ‘My Love Is Cool‘, which hit No. 2 in the UK charts and No. 12 on the Billboard alternative albums chart in the US.
In its wake the band won two NME Awards and were nominated for the Mercury Music Prize, an Ivor Novello Award, a BRIT for Breakthrough Act and Grammy for Best Rock Performance.
Following a 2017 winter world tour, including their biggest headline UK show to date with a sold out show at London’s Alexandra Palace, Wolf Alice will head out on the road again this year, including festival performances and stadium support slots with Queens of the Stone Age and Foo Fighters.
