Listen to the new and final album from
Lone Wolf – streaming now on TLOBF!
Having seemingly withdrawn from making music altogether due to a crippling battle with anxiety, it came as somewhat of a shock when Paul Marshall (Lone Wolf) announced that in 2015 he would be releasing his third and last album, Lodge.
Marshall posted a blog on his website explaining that the one place he ever felt human, The Lodge in Bridlington, was to be no more. This is the place where Marshall had recorded all of his previous material, and the thought of never being able to make music there again seemed to be the catalyst that made him unlock the iron gate of his anxiety and emerge for perhaps one last time.
Lone Wolf approached the recording of this album very differently to his previous works on Bella Union and his own label (both critically acclaimed The Devil and I and The Lovers). He locked himself inside The Lodge with only his producer (long time band mate James Kenosha) and trumpeter David Wärmegård for six days. Despite evidently being an accomplished guitarist, he devoted his attention to the piano on this record, and decided to use this one last chance to record in his mental haven like a confession booth to speak openly about who he really is, and the skin he lives in. Albums do not come more human and organic than this.
You can listen to Paul’s forthcoming album in it’s entirety now on The Line of Best Fit and read an indepth interview of why this will be the last album from Lone Wolf.
