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. Wolfmother.net 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
