The cover appears on a new ‘Tour Deluxe’ edition of the band’s five-star third album ‘Blue Weekend’, which came out earlier this year.
The new edition of the album, out today (October 29), features four live versions of songs from ‘Blue Weekend’ alongside the ‘Bobby’ cover.
Listen to the new version of the album in full, including the Alex G cover, below:
Wolf Alice released ‘Blue Weekend’ back in June via Dirty Hit. Upon its release, NME called it “a masterpiece full of confidence and magic” in a five-star album review.
Last month, the band brought the new record to a tiny show at Kingston venue Pryzm as part of a tour supporting the Music Venue Trust’s Revive Live campaign. Reviewing the show, NME wrote: “What’s impressive is how seamlessly the band shift gears, segueing from tender vulnerability to teeth-baring riffs without missing a beat.”
Speaking to NME last month, bassist Theo Ellis said that it was “amazing” to be back out on the road post-COVID restrictions. (Wolf Alice headlined Latitude in July and played a main stage slot at Reading & Leeds last month).
“There’s such a huge and different community of people that have been affected by [the pandemic] in the music world,” Ellis told NME. “It’s not just us – it’s all of our crew, all the people who work at these festivals, all the people who work at venues.

Alex G, meanwhile, dropped the ‘(Sandy)’ from his name last year. Alex G – real name Alexander Giannascoli – adopted (Sandy) as part of his stage name in 2017 as he was promoting his album ‘Rocket’. While he gave no explanation for the name change at the time, Alex G is also the stage name of an LA-based pop artist.
Alex G’s most recent album, ‘House Of Sugar’, came out in 2019.
