CW: Music happens really out of order for me. When my band-mate Ben Chisholm joined the band about three or four years ago we started writing these electronic songs for fun and maybe thought that we would do a side project with it or something. But over time, I just realized that I didn’t want to put limits on my own project and we started playing some of the songs live, just to kind of see how it felt and how they went over. And it was a lot of fun. So I knew when it came time to put together a new album, I wanted to include some of those old electronic songs as well as write some new electronic songs and have that be a base that we kind of start with. But I could never really stick to one genre or one sound so I added some rock songs and a folk song and a piano song on there as well and kind of fit them together in theme, and lyrically and things like that.

Track Premiere “Be Free” a new song by King Dude & Chelsea Wolfe

The hypothetical Venn Diagram of Chelsea Wolfe and T.J. Cowgill would have a dense gravitational pull towards the center; for the past several years, both artists have worked with charred, neo-folk instrumentation, a gothic warble, and at times the spirit of an old country jukebox. “Be Free” is the pair’s new collaborative 7” from the Not Just Religous Music label—helmed by the Gira-reminiscent Cowgill, aka King Dude—and again proves their voices to be complementary. It’s a cold, sad, fiercely-strummed march, booming open and closed like Wolfe’s staggering Pain Is Beauty LP. “Don’t you dare take my hand if you want to be free,” Wolfe and Cowgill sing to one another, articulating the sentiment in various iterations. It’s a timeless negotiation between desire and emotional freedom and the necessity of not looking back, and also one of the most direct pieces of songwriting either artist has casted out.

Feral Love Premiere, an excerpt from the long from film LONE directed by Mark Pellington

Chelsea Wolfe has shared the intense, unsettling video for her Pain Is Beauty track “Feral Love”. It’s an excerpt from the film Lone, which was co-written by Wolfe and directed by Mark Pellington, the director of Pearl Jam’s iconic “Jeremy” video and clips for Michael Jackson, Nine Inch Nails, U2, and others, plus the films Arlington Road, The Mothman Prophecies, and more. It’s due out later this year, both as a stream and on custom-designed USB drives. The hour-long film’s dialogue consists solely of lyrics from Pain Is Beauty.

Here’s a quote from Pellington:
“Chelsea Wolfe’s voice and lyrics narrate this voyeuristic look into the abstract, cathartic subconscious. Lone is a sight and sound exploration into the themes of nature, sexuality, memory, mortality, forgiveness, love, innocence, fragility, violence and beauty.”

Lone Pre-order will be going up this week here.

Insound Session with Chelsea Wolfe : Lone


Amoeba Records asks “What’s In Your Bag” Chelsea Wolfe

With her new album Pain is BeautyChelsea Wolfe self-imposed the weighty task of rewriting the ending to the George Orwell’s classic 1984. Though many would beg to differ, Wolfe believed the book could stand to end on a more positive note.

“I reread 1984 and I was unhappy with it,” Wolfe told Radio.com. “I wrote a more idealistic ending to the book because I have a more idealistic outlook on life.”

Due to her darker sound, which can best be described as beautiful black metal, Wolfe has been pegged as a rather gloomy singer. But she says people, mainly critics, have gotten her all wrong. ”There’s two sides to me: I’m very much reality based and also really idealistic,” she explained. “I like to think that there’s a fight out there and we have to fight for the one that we love.”

Chelsea Wolfe is trying to remember the name of the Werner Herzog film she loves so much, that one about Antarctica. Arctic Circle? Journey to the End of the Earth? She ruminates for a second. “Encounters at the End of the World, that’s it!” She says it victoriously but timidly, in a soft-spoken whisper that makes you wonder if the mysterious singer ever really lets her emotion show outside of her palpable songs.

"That movie was so inspiring for me. It’s such a magical piece of art focusing on something most people would overlook and showing how beautiful it can be," she says, hinting at the deep worldview she grasps at behind those fierce blue eyes. The documentary was just one of the many films Wolfe fixated on while making her new album Pain Is Beauty, a chiseled record with electronic flourishes, sultry piano and string ballads, and even Goldfrapp-cured pop that, at its core, comes from and is about nature.

“Who is more frightened: those bursting out of their darkness of woods upon all the space of light, or those from the open tiptoeing into the forests?” ponders D.H. Lawrence in his semi-autobiographical masterwork, Sons and Lovers. It’s a passage that American noir-tinged singer-songwriter Chelsea Wolfe is quick to attach to her track ‘Feral Love’: the opening salvo of her recently released fourth album, Pain is Beauty.

An album of contrasts, Pain is Beauty is by no means the dark and drab affair that the dourness of that quote might have you believe. Instead, it’s a record of contrasts that crackles with all the intensity of a bonfire on a crisp November night. Whether dabbling in more beat-driven electronica or piano-led elegies, what ties it together is the sort of mythic, grand storytelling you might expect to find in a Hans Christian Andersen fairytale.

In the midst of a tour with instrumental post-rock trio Russian Circles, we met Wolfe in the corner booth of a North London pub to discover the ways in which she first connected with music, the love of poetry that informed her passion for writing, and what she’d spin on her final night on Earth.
