Multi-talented alt-pop singer, songwriter, and producer Lowell releases her sophomore album Lone Wolf today on Arts & Crafts. The long-awaited ten-track collection features the vibrant production of Howie Beck (Feist, Charlotte Day Wilson), Davey Badiuk (Tegan and Sara, Dragonette), Gus Van Go (The Stills, Wintersleep), Zale Epstein (Childish Gambino, DVSN) and Tek (Justin Bieber, Diplo). Lone Wolf ranges from alt-pop ballads to ferocious dancefloor rally-cries – in celebration of release, Lowell spoke with Noisey to discuss its creation, her inspiration, and where she’s headed next.
Lone Wolf includes previously released single “War Face,” an infectious track highlighted by a relentless battle rhythm and anthemic hook which was featured in the 2017 season premiere of Grey’s Anatomy. The album follows Lowell’s critically acclaimed 2014 debut LP We Loved Her Dearly, a juxtaposition of sweet pop melodies and pointed political content. By contrast, the new LP is a collection of deeply personal songs that reflect on the power and influence of youth, and harnessing the irrepressible energy of the teenage perspective.
A powerful exploration of self-discovery, Lone Wolf is a celebration of who Lowell is now: a mature and accomplished songwriter who in the last few years has not only written for Icona Pop, Dragonette, Netsky, and Grandtheft, but has also had a strong hand in developing Canada’s newest rising star, 18 year-old Bülow. It encompasses what Lowell has proven she does best: creating masterful pop-music-in-disguise, replete with energetic percussion, heavy toms, and soaring vocals.
