Patrick Wolf

Add Date: August 4

Artist: Patrick Wolf

Album: The Bachelor

Label: Nylon

Genre: Rock, pop

Comments: From the promoter: "Patrick Wolf, the UK-based multi-instrumentalist known for his masterfully orchestrated and emotive songs, will release his fourth studio album, The Bachelor, this summer on Nylon Records... Originally intended as a double album, The Bachelor began its creation immediately following his tour for 2007's critically acclaimed The Magic Position... Exploring his own doubts on idea of love and marriage, Patrick found inspiration in experimentation, with bleak electronic and industrial sounds, as well as finding solace in some of the classics of his teenage years like Pixies and The Raincoats. Capturing Patrick's outlook in life at that time, The Bachelor narrates a story of pessimism regarding love to be concluded with a forthcoming sequel album (The Conqueror), slated for release in 2010. Always expanding on his repertoire of different musical genres, Patrick's command of baroque pop is taken to a new level with the addition of large choral and string sections, and collaborators such as Alec Empire, Eliza Carthy, Matthew Herbert and Oscar-winning actress Tilda Swinton, who narrates 'the voice of hope' throughout the album." Recommended tracks on the album sticker.
