Beloved Indie Band Celebrates Wildewoman’s 10th Anniversary with a Newly Recorded, Enhanced Version of Their Breakthrough LP

Listen To “How Loud Your Heart Gets (The New Recording)”: HERE

Acclaimed indie band Lucius: Jess Wolfe (vocals, keyboards), Holly Laessig (vocals, keyboards), Dan Molad (drums), and Peter Lalish (guitar), will celebrate the 10th anniversary of their breakthrough LP with the release of Wildewoman (The New Recordings), on May 31, 2024, via Fantasy Records. Today, Lucius shares the gorgeous, pulsating lead track “How Loud Your Heart Gets (The New Recording),” watch the lyric video HERE and pre-order Wildewoman (The New Recordings) HERE.

This newly recorded, 13-track expanded version, produced and mixed by Dan Molad at Altamira Studios and Sounds Like a Fire Studios in Los Angeles, enriches the original album’s sonics and enhances its instrumentation, widening and deepening these remarkable songs. The set also features friends Marcus Mumford on “Go Home (The New Recording)” and Devon Gilfillian on “Tempest (The New Recording).”  Additionally, CD and vinyl version features close friend and collaborator Brandi Carlile on the previously unreleased fan favorite “Housewarming (The New Recording)”.

Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig on Wildewoman (The New Recordings):

“We wanted to bring back that same spark and energy you really only get in the beginning, when everything is new, and all firsts feel magical. But actually, we were tighter musically, the fans even more dedicated, and our growth as a band showed itself in wonderful ways. We realized that in tandem with this idea, and because of the time that had passed, we could re-record the entire record outside of any conflict with our old label; we could come at it with more experience, more discernment, and take liberties with some of the arrangements. We brought back the original 5 members, and we invited friends to collaborate with us to make this home-of-of-a-record even more lived in and loved. We’re proud of the outcome and excited to introduce Wildewoman in its essence, with a little more life under her belt: Wildewoman (The New Recordings).”

The new LP’s striking artwork is a painting entitled “Le mur du son – ©1966,” by renowned Belgian 60’s pop artist (and feminist pioneer), Evelyne Axell. Admirers of Axell’s bold and symmetrical geometric colors, Wolfe and Laessig have utilized the celebrated artist’s classic imagery on several previous occasions including Axell’s iconic 1964 painting “Ice Cream 1,” which graced the original cover of Wildewoman in 2013.

When Lucius burst onto the scene with their debut album, Wildewoman, the indie-pop group led by songwriters/vocalists/instrumentalists Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig, arrived carrying a cache of undeniable songs that found a devoted audience and launched the band on a sustained and celebrated creative journey. Fans became enthralled with way Wolfe & Laessig’s vocals intertwined seamlessly, yielding the illusion of one full-bodied voice. With its inventive, artful songwriting (including the energetic single “Turn it Around” and the enduring track “Two of Us on the Run,”) Wildewoman blended the classic sensibilities of pop’s nascent era with inventive originality and vision. It set off a wave of critical acclaim that included Rolling Stone, who called the album “fresh and thrilling,” and The Line of Best Fit, who declared “It’s quite incredible, really, that Wildewoman is a debut album. The performances are assured and impeccably crafted.”

The new single and album announcement follows Lucius’ sold-out, 7-date Wildewoman: The Anniversary Tour earlier this year. Last month, the group announced an 18-date North American tour supporting The National and The War on Drugs that begins September 12 at Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion in Gilford, NH and concludes on October 7 at LA’s legendary Hollywood Bowl.
