Wolf Alice are to release a box-set edition of their ‘My Love Is Cool’ album which adds a total of 18 songs to the original 12-track album.
The box-set, which is released on August 19, comes as the band have unveiled the video for new single ‘Lisbon’. Wolf Alice’s first animated video, it’s described as a surreal fairytale exploring love, loss and sadness. The video is directed by Eat The Danger, the Irish animated studio who also directed Courtney Barnett’s ‘Dead Fox’ video.
The announcement of the £60 box-set comes a year to the day of the release of ‘My Love Is Cool’. It reached No 2, kept from the top by Florence And The Machine’s ‘How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful’ following Florence’s headline Glastonbury appearance.
The box features the album pressed on heavyweight double vinyl in a gatefold sleeve, a hardback book featuring 40 pages of rare and unseen photos and a strip of photos from the photo booth pictures which featured in the ‘My Love In Cool’ artwork.
It also adds a 10-song CD, ‘B-Sides, Demos And Shit’, featuring five B-sides plus demos of ‘Movie Of Your Life’, ‘Destroy Me’, ‘Wednesday’, ‘Bros’ and ‘Swallowtail’. It’s rounded off with repressings of Wolf Alice’s early 10” EPs, ‘Creature Songs’ and ‘Blush’.
Wolf Alice play the Pyramid Stage of Glastonbury at 3pm on Saturday, in between Baaba Maal and Madness. They then play Barclaycard Presents British Summer Time with Mumford And Sons, plus Boardmasters, Glass Butter, Reading And Leeds, Electric Picnic, Bestival and By The Sea festivals.
