The band took to Annie Mac’s show last night to perform tracks from new album ‘Visions Of A Life’. Sharing in-the-flesh versions of recently unveiled, summer-ready singles ‘Beautifully Unconventional’ and ‘Don’t Delete The Kisses’, the group then stripped back the track from Beyoncé’s 2016 album ‘Lemonade’ to close out the short, early-evening performance.
“We love that album,” explained singer/guitarist Ellie Rowsell. “We didn’t know which one to choose, but this one’s got the feels.”
Listen back to the performance here – Wolf Alice’s cover of Beyoncé’s ‘All Night’ starts at 12:30.
Wolf Alice are this week’s NME cover stars – read the cover feature in full online here.
As part of that feature, the band discussed their love of Labour leader (and former fellow NME cover star) Jeremy Corbyn. The band were vocal supporters of Labour in the run-up to June’s General Election – with singer Ellie Rowsell even appearing in a video posted on Jeremy Corbyn’s Twitter account.
Now, they’ve opened up on how the Labour leader has “galvanised a generation” and described the huge fanfare that followed him on the election campaign.
Speaking to NME, Rowsell said: “We did go to a few events he was at, but we never got to meet him. It seemed like anywhere he went he was absolutely mobbed and bombarded. He’s like the biggest indie band in the world.”
