Canadian indie-pop artist Lowell announced her sophomore album ‘Lone Wolf’ on Wednesday. While Lowell said via a Facebook post that the album would drop “next week,” the follow-up to 2014’s excellent (but largely overlooked) ‘We Loved Her Dearly‘ will be out on 6 April according to Arts & Crafts. The announcement comes as a surprise considering Lowell declared the LP was mastered last May before a social media silence.
Arts & Crafts describes the album as being full “of deeply personal songs that reflect on the power and influence of youth” and drawing “its inspiration from lyrics Lowell had written as a younger artist.” The feminist musician also gave listeners the first taste of new music by dropping the album’s lead single, ‘War Face’, a “relentless battle rhythm” that hints at the artist’s alternative pop growth, Recalling Elle King and Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, ‘War Face’ maintains the raw emotion found throughout ‘We Loved Her Dearly’.
