Patrick Wolf has announced the tracklisting for his new album 'Sundark And Riverlight'.

The double LP will be released on September 25 to celebrate the singer's 10-year anniversary as a recording artist. It features new acoustic versions of songs from his last five albums, some of which have updated lyrics.

The re-recordings, which have been arranged and produced solely by Wolf, have been grouped into discs with distinct themes. 'Sundark' will feature "more solitary darker material", while 'Riverlight' will house "songs of hope and relationship".

Discussing the album's development, Wolf said: "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."

Wolf will launch the album with an intimate gig at London's Old Vic Theatre on August 29, before embarking on a world tour this autumn (2012). The British leg of Wolf's tour begins at the Lowry in Manchester on November 6 and ends at St Mary's Church in Brighton on December 11, taking in stops at Cardiff, Gateshead, Warwick, Glasgow, Penzance and Bristol.

The singer, real name Patrick Denis Apps, made his debut with 'The Patrick Wolf' EP in 2002 and has since released five studio albums. His most recent LP, 'Lupercalia', became his first to reach the UK Top 40 when it came out in November last year (2011).

Disc 1: 'Sundark'
