They are up against Gnarls Barkley, Ray Lamontagne, Orson and The Raconteurs. So I think they’ve got a reasonable chance of winning, though Gnarls Barkley and The Raconteurs will be the favourites I am sure.

Love Attacker lyrics?

January 19, 2007

Over on the Wolfmother forums, member Come on the wolfies! reckons he’s worked out the lyrics to Wolfmother’s new song, Love Attacker.

If you think different, let us know!

Love Attacker, Shes a cracker
She’ll be living on her shelf
Can’t defeat her, can’t beat her
she’s been off and on herself
Love Attacker, Shes a crack girl
Shes been living on her own
gonna beat you, gonna meet her
gonna give it on her own

All that you know fades away
All that you know fades away

pleased to meet you, wanna greet you
then ill take you on my way
Love Attacker, shes a cracker
then she’ll put you on the shelf

Shes gonna beat you, gonna meet you
then im gonna buy me a job
Love Attacker, Shes a crack girl
Shes gonna put you on her mound

All that you know fades away
All that you know fades away

Ill give you anything
If you want anything
Ill give you anything
If you want anything
Ill give you anything
If you want anything

New song! And news of the second album

January 8, 2007

Well finally some confirmation of new material! Over on the Wolfmother forums, much discussion goes on about when new material is coming out, when the next album might be recorded, whether they have toured for too long, etc etc. So it’s great to read some news about both a new song, that has already been recorded, and plans for the next album.

About the new song:

Andrew StockdaleWolfmother celebrated the news of their Grammy nomination last month by writing a new song, which they’ve since recorded.

“The working title is ‘Love Attacker,’ ” Stockdale said. “It’s about people who use love as a weapon to manipulate and get their way through desire.”

Stockdale’s unsure whether the song will turn up on Wolfmother’s next album or someplace else first. “It might be out there in no time at all,” he said. “No plans have been made … but it’s very exciting to be doing another song.”

And of the album:

As for that next album, Wolfmother don’t expect to be back in the studio again until the fall.

“We do have a lot of jams, like incoherent pieces of music, that at least could get the ball rolling,” Stockdale said. “And I have a few ideas I’ve been working on in hotels and stuff, which is kind of the way half of the record was written last time. Sometimes it can be a long process and sometimes it happens really quickly, so you just have to keep the fishing net open for ideas and hope that you catch a few.”

So why the long wait? Well, tour dates in Japan, Europe and Australia are scheduled through early April, after which Wolfmother plan to hit the States one more time.

“We’ll be touring till probably July, and then we’ll probably take a break and start working on the second record at the end of [2007],” Stockdale said.

The article is actually about Wolfmother’s Grammy chances next month (which Andrew believes to be little to none!), and the band will be there, apparently, despite gigs in the UK two nights before and in Holland two nights after.
