“The vinyl has arrived & we’ve held it in our arms and let me tell u we r very proud parents,” they wrote. “We’re bringing the release date forward so put June 4th in ur diaries.”

In the same post, the band revealed that they will give ‘Smile’ its live debut on The Late Late Show With James Corden tomorrow (May 4).

Discussing the meaning behind the new single upon its release last month, vocalist Ellie Rowsell told Annie Mac: “It’s about people that make assumptions about you.”

“This is one of the songs we wrote thinking that we would play it live,” Rowsell added in a press release. “I miss that feeling of singing on stage. It’s like screaming into a pillow or something — you can get away with being more nasty. There’s a whole other part of me missing.”

Wolf Alice will take ‘Blue Weekend’ out on the road next January, when they’ll perform in Glasgow, Newcastle, Manchester, Liverpool, London and other cities over the course of the month. You can get tickets here.

“I can’t wait to play these new songs live they are gonna sound so gooooood,” the band said in a statement. “Joff’s pedal board literally sounds like an orchestra at the moment and you have no idea how sweet Theo’s falsetto is rn.”
