Patrick Wolf – The City

OMG, OMG, OMG  *orgasms to death in a hugely-sticky-but-tragically-beautiful-corpse-kinda-way* heh!

I am a HUGE Patrick Wolf fan, and I am loving the official video that has come out for his forthcoming single ‘The City‘ (which has to be one of my favourites, such an awesome gorgeous sound!) 😀


The Guardian, who had the video exclusive yesterday, sum the whole vibe of the video up perfectly in my opinion: ” Another sparkling pop song from Patrick Wolf – this time involving lost love, booming drums and a spot of piano playing on Santa Monica beach”.

In the press release accompanying the single, Patrick had the following to say about the song:

“‘The City’ saved my life. Living in central London, I woke up one broody morning having booked some studio time. It was a hot summers day and in the midst of the protests against the banks and BBC6 Music closing down. Seeing how the recession had worked its way into peoples relationships and ambitions, I went to my piano and started to fight against the negative by writing in the positive.”

The City is out on March 14th 2011 and is the first single to be taken from Patrick’s forthcoming album Lupercalia.
