Patrick Wolf Releasing Double Album ‘Sundark & Riverlight’

Written by Brayden Darke on August 10, 2012

To celebrate his 10 years as a recording artist, Patrick Wolf will release a double album titled Sundark & Riverlight, which will consist of acoustic re-recordings made up from songs written throughout his career. The album will be released on 25th September, which ties in nicely with his Australian shows earlier in the month.

Over his illustrious career, Wolf has ventured into a number of diverse fields and exhibited countless talents, but it is as a performer and songwriter that he truly shines. NME reports that the album was recorded in Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios.

Patrick says of the album: “This project started when I realised I had reached a 10 year jubilee as a recording artist. My first EP came out when I was 19 and in the 10 years hence, my voice has grown with me.”

He continues: “I started out playing with just one instrument and singing with no microphones in folk clubs, on the streets and galleries. I missed that raw communication so much and the spontaneous energy of that live situation. When I went to the studio I thought I was going to record a one-man solo album, but I started to dream, and heard bassoons and bodhrans. This is my first totally acoustic album and so I made certain that we were working with analogue tape and recording equipment.”

Patrick Wolf will be visiting Australia this September, playing a collection of a songs from his 5-album back catalogue. For this tour we’ll see Wolf take the stage, playing grand piano, Celtic harp, dulcimer and more, but he’ll only be accompanied by one other musician on stage. Check out the full tour dates here.
