We mentioned a little while ago that gloriously OTT artiste Patrick Wolf would be releasing a new album this year entitled Battle and that we, the general public, would be funding it through our taxes that should be going towards helping rid this country of scum...oh, sorry, that's the article I'm doing for The Daily Mail. No, he asked fans to help fund the album, which will now be called The Bachelor, due out on 1 June.

If you donated some money then you might want to have a listen to the first fruits of his labour, the single 'Vulture':

It's a bit all over the place, but the 'chorus' of "d-d-d-d-d-dead meat" is sure to feature prominently on Radio 1 very soon. Certainly less immediate then anything from The Magic Position, it features beats from Alec Empire, hence the more abrasive tone, and the Wolf-directed video is expected to be very visceral and ohh, err, a little bit sexual.

Will it be as good as this though?
