Third album: preliminary details

June 3, 2011 by  

A few early details regarding Wolfmother’s upcoming third album have been obtained by a fan who was lucky enough to speak to the band backstage at a recent gig. moderator Jimmi was at the June 1st gig in London, England, and met Stockdale and co. before and after the gig to have a sneaky discussion about the currently untitled follow-up to 2009’s Cosmic Egg.

Writing on the forums, Jimmi explained that the third album is completely recorded and mixed, with just “a few vocal touch up[s] needed”. The album will apparently comprise 12 tracks and be released in approximately three months, indicating a September 2011 release. As for the new songs, Jimmi claims that he has heard a total of five unreleased tracks: two in soundcheck, two in the live set, and another backstage after the gig; he praised the new direction, noting that the songs had “good thumping riffs” and were “really catchy”.

A quick search on YouTube brings up a couple of indications as to the new material, including a song being referred to as “The Year of the Dragon” and another song for which the title is as yet unknown. Another video floating around from the gig shows the band covering a portion of the Led Zeppelin classic “Stairway to Heaven“. It is unknown when this new material will see the light of day, but it seems that the band are ready to release it some time before the end of the year (save for any trademark delays, of course).

    So… release Year of the Dragon as a single and the entire album a month later would be a nice plan. As long as it is done in 2011

    Oh my goodness! Incredible article dude! Thank you so much,
    However I am experiencing difficulties with your RSS. I don’t

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious
    what all is required to get set up? I’m assuming
    having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% positive.
    Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Appreciate it
