Remi Wolf has announced his debut album, âJunoâ, due for release later this year, sharing two new singles, âQuiet On Setâ and âGrumpy Old Manâ.
Both new tracks feature contrasting corners of Wolf’s art – “Quiet On Set” is a hard-hitting club-ready banger with a hip-hop influence, while “Grumpy Old Man” is a much lighter indie track. and more introspective.
Take a look at the music videos for ‘Quiet On Set’ and ‘Grumpy Old Man’, both directed by Haley Appell, below:
In a press release, Wolf described “Quiet On Set” as “full of psychosis,” saying that “even though the song is silly and funny, it really reflects my life and feelings back then … overworked, maniacal, reckless, and childish â.
She noted that “Grumpy Old Man” came from a more vulnerable place than she usually does with her songwriting, with the number inspired by “some of the more benign things. [that] can make me irritated and defensive, which makes me feel old, fragile and carefree â.
Both tracks will appear on ‘Juno’, which is scheduled for release on October 15 via Island. The LP will also feature last month’s single “Liquor Store” and is named after her dog, which she adopted during the lockdown.
âCreating my first album ‘Juno’ was like a feverish dream,â said Wolf. âSo many changes were happening in my life while I was creating these songs and I think my album really reflects the feelings of tension and release that these changes brought to me.
âEvery song on this album is a vivid snapshot of what was going on in my life and my state of mind the day I wrote each one. I hope my Remjobs can hear my honesty and passion come true. show up and if not, I just hope they think every song is great! â
âJunoâ follows Wolf’s 2020 EP, âI’m Allergic To Dogs!â. NME declared the record one of the year’s best releases, with writer Thomas Smith calling it “a flamboyant pop collage that sticks vignettes of her love life, hedonism and monotonous obstacles.”
Wolf also participated in the 2021 edition of the NME 100, with a blurb: “There is also so much serotonin in every [of Wolfâs] Brilliantly inventive and unpredictable tracks, they should be prescribed on the NHS for the times you need to get out of the blues.
