Remi Wolf drops her debut album Juno on October 15th.
To celebrate the announcement, Wolf has unveiled two new tracks “Quiet On Set” and “Grumpy Old Man,” the second and third new songs off the forthcoming album.
“Creating my debut album ‘Juno’ was like a fever dream,” Wolf said. “So many changes were happening in my life while I was creating these songs and I think my album really reflects the feelings of tension and release that these changes provoked in me.
“Every song on this record is a vivid snapshot into what was going on in my life and mindset the day I wrote each one,” Wolf said. “I hope my Remjobs can hear my honesty and passion come through and, if not, I just hope they think each song is a banger! The album is named ‘Juno’ after my beautiful dog I adopted during lockdown. He ended up being in every single writing session for this album and I consider him my partner, witness, and support in the making of this record.”
Both tracks are accompanied by visualizers that showcase Wolf’s eye for effervescent visual aesthetics.
The two songs are a window into the kaleidoscope of styles Wolf demonstrates on Juno. Born from a jam session, “Quiet On Set” is a result of Wolf’s feelings at the time: “…it really does reflect my life and feelings at the time…overworked, manic, reckless, and childish.”
“Grumpy Old Man” is a strutting bop that was inspired, in Wolf’s words, by “some of the most benign things [that] can make me irritated and defensive, which makes me feel old, fragile, and careless.” Though equally distinct, both offerings share Wolf’s cathartic ability to create light from the darkest corners.
