Patrick Wolf is set to release a double album called 'Sundark & Riverlight', which will feature acoustic re-recordings of songs from throughout his career.

The LP will be released on September 25 to celebrate his 10 years as a recording artist. The album was recorded at Peter Gabriel's Real World Studios. Patrick said: "This project started when I realised I had reached a 10-year jubilee as a recording artist. My first EP came out when I was 19 and in the 10 years hence, my voice has grown with me."

He continues: "I started out playing with just one instrument and singing with no microphones in folk clubs, on the streets and galleries. I missed that raw communication so much and the spontaneous energy of that live situation. When I went to the studio I thought I was going to record a one-man solo album, but I started to dream, and heard bassoons and bodhrans. This is my first totally acoustic album and so I made certain that we were working with analogue tape and recording equipment."

Patrick Wolf will also celebrate his 10th anniversary with a host of gigs. He will play London's Old Vic Theatre on August 29 and then play eight further shows in November and December as part of a full European tour. These end with a show in Brighton at St Mary's Church on December 11.

He will be accompanied by one other musician on stage and has promised to play an entirely different set list on each night of the tour.

Patrick Wolf will play:

London Old Vic Theatre (August 29)
Salford Lowry (November 6)
Cardiff Gate (7)
Gateshead Sage Theatre (20)
Warwick Arts Centre (24)
Glasgow Cottiers (25)
Penzance Ritz Theatre (December 9)
Bristol St. George's (10)
Brighton St Mary's Church (11)
