South London vocalist, multi-instrumentalist and producer Wu-Lu has announced his forthcoming debut album, 'LOGGERHEAD', out 8th of July on Warp Records. The record is an urgent, post-genre masterpiece for modern times and Wu-Lu’s most fully-realised music yet.
The news arrives alongside intense new single, 'Blame', out today. “The song is about a breakdown in communication between my inner voice and my external voice and a situation that arose which lead me to end a relationship”, explains Wu-Lu. The single comes with accompanying video, 'Blame / Ten', which includes additional bonus track 'Ten'. The 'Blame' video is directed by Denisha Anderson, with 'Ten' by Ethan & Tom.
Wu-Lu plays The Great Escape in Brighton next week followed by shows across the UK and Europe throughout the summer, then a hometown headline show at Village Underground on 8th September. He will play in The Netherlands on June 17 at Grauzone Festival, The Hague and July 15 at Welcome To The Village, Leeuwarden.
Born out of fearless self-examination and expression, 'LOGGERHEAD' is music for the ignored, underrepresented, and those without a voice. A soundtrack to these richly troubled times intended to inspire and encourage. The album features Asha, Lex Amor, Léa Sen, plus input from other friends and peers, including; Ego Ella May, Morgan Simpson (black midi), Demae and Mica Levi. 'LOGGERHEAD' - available for pre-order now - draws on a wide array of influences, from DJ Shadow to Slipknot, and looks destined to cement Wu-Lu’s status as one of the UK’s most original, vital artists.
