Actual Wolf premieres first song from forthcoming debut album

Actual Wolf has released the first taste of their upcoming debut record due out this fall.

Actual Wolf is preparing to release his debut, self-titled album in the fall after a year of touring behind his two EPs Actual Wolf USA and Lightning and The Wolf. Eric Pollard has assembled a full band to bolster his ideas into full, lush arrangements; the talents of Steve Garrington and brothers Jake and Jeremy Hanson are now in the mix, ensuring that these songs don’t get written off as just another “guy with a guitar.” 

“Kerosene and Spark,” our first taste of the forthcoming record, isn’t so much a departure from what Pollard was doing before. But it’s definitely an immaculately produced alt-country rocker, and without a doubt a mature expansion on what started as a more lo-fi, Bob Dylan inspired project.

Grab the single for free all this week, watch the music video and peruse the lyrics, handwritten by Pollard’s dad with noteworthy penmanship.
