So… looks like the rumours were right on the money! Wolfmother have confirmed that their fourth studio album will be entitled Victorious and will see release on 19th February 2016. The release looks to be supported by the band’s label Universal, contrary to the self-released New Crown of last year. The rumoured title Gypsy Caravan is actually the title of a new song, but the artwork was pretty much bang on so this could have been an earlier planned title for the album.
Customers who pre-order Victorious on iTunes (currently only available on the US store, possibly more when you’re reading this!) will also receive downloads of the tracks ‘Victorious‘ (the album’s lead single) and ‘City Lights‘. Both tracks are also available on YouTube (click song titles). The full track listing can be seen below. The one note I personally would make is that the album seems short, clocking in at just over 35 minutes. However, quality over quantity and all that, so bring it on.
The album is confirmed to feature frontman Andrew Stockdale on vocals, guitars and bass, with drums shared between Josh Freese and Joey Waronker. No word yet on whether Ian Peres and Vin Steele appear on the record, but they are not mentioned yet. Recording took place at Henson Studios in Hollywood, California with producer Brendan O’Brien.
EDIT: Andrew has since confirmed that Ian Peres will in fact be on the album. He played all the keyboards on the album, with bass handled by Andrew as mentioned. Andrew stated in an interview with Loudwire that the recording of the keys “only took two days”.
Also confirmed is a North American tour, which will start on 24th February in Minneapolis, Minnesota and run until 1st April in Vancouver, British Columbia. Full details can be found at this exclusive Billboard magazine interview with Andrew.

- The Love That You Give — 2:38
