"And in this drought of truth and invention
Whoever shouts the loudest gets the most attention
So we pass the mic and they've got nothing to say except,
Bow down, bow down, bow down to your god
And we hit the floor, Make ourselves an idol
To bow before, well I can't
And I won't, bow down
With gypsy strings and a driving beat that lay the base to epic sounds of galloping horses and Patricks deepening and maturing vocals, The Libertine is the grand opener and first single from "Wind in the Wires", his second LP (out late Feb).
Its a lyrical call to arms for personal liberation and greater freedom of expression in an increasingly stagnant age of false idols and half-baked heroes.
The single comes in both CD and 7 single formats, as well as having a video to accompany it. Tracklisting differs between CD and vinyl. The B side for the CD will be two previously unreleased tracks, Penzance and Wind in the Wires (clifftop demo), and the 7 b-side will be a cover of Nicos beautiful song Afraid (previously only released for a limited time on Patricks website www.patrickwolf.com). Sleeve design and all recordings produced, performed, written and arranged by Patrick.
At only 21, London songwriter Patrick Wolf is quickly becoming a performer and songwriter that cant help but be noticed here in the UK. However, if you listen to this, the music speaks for itself.
