The first cut off Patrick Wolf's forthcoming album 'Battle' has surfaced. It's called 'Vulture' and, although I thought it was a bit tuneless at first listen, I've since decided that it's fairly amazing.
There seems to have been something of a backlash towards Mr. Wolf recently, perhaps because his last album was markedly more mainstream-angled than its predecessors, but I'm standing by my man. 'The Magic Position' was easily my favourite album of 2007 and, on this evidence, 'Battle' may be a contender for this year's title.
