English songwriter Patrick Wolf has introduced his comeback EP The Night time Safari with lead single, “Enter the Day,” his first new launch in over a decade.
We final heard from Wolf with 2012’s Sundark and Riverlight, a double-album acoustic reimagining of his catalog. “Enter the Day” arrives precisely 20 years after his debut, The Patrick Wolf EP. The music opens with looking pianos and the phrases, “There isn’t a straightforward option to start/ Telling the story of the 12 months of your drowning.”
In an announcement, Wolf stated that when he wrote the music he’d been fascinated about his mom, who died of most cancers in 2018. “A charcoal drawing of a sparrow hawk was the final work my mom was making earlier than she died and once I took my first stroll to discover the land round my new residence again once I moved to dwell by the ocean, a sparrow hawk was hovering over me in silence on the mouth of the bay,” he wrote. “That afternoon I went residence to my upright piano and commenced scripting this music, which ended up changing into an epilogue to the narrative of The Night time Safari EP. As producer I crafted this music as a bridge out of the plaintive manufacturing of Sundark and Riverlight to the place the brand new EP will safari the listener to.”
