Hot Video Alert: Patrick Wolf - House
"House" is the third single taken off of Patrick Wolf's forthcoming fifth studio album, Lupercalia, due June 20th in the UK on Mercury Records. All of the singles as well as the album were written and produced by Wolf, including "House" and it's predecessor "The City," released back in March.
Despite not having too much in the way of chart success ("The City" peaked at #195 on the UK Singles chart), "House" was chosen as BBC Radio 2's 'Record of the Week' during the week of May 21st, which is a pretty big deal. I've always loved the theatrical quality Patrick Wolf brings to everything he sings, and backed by a steady dance beat like this song is, the song really turns into something special. The single was released both digitally, and on a special edition 7" Vinyl. Go get it on UK iTunes HERE. You can also download "The City," along with the AMAZING Richard Xremix, which I hadn't heard until now. BRILLIANT. UK fans can also pre-order the album featuring both "House" and "The City" HERE.
I look forward to hopefully seeing Wolf bring his flamboyant stage show to America again soon. Seeing him open for Amy Winehouse was such a treat!
