Tilda Swinton To Appear On Patrick Wolf Album

She provides "voice of hope"

Actress Tilda Swinton is to guest on Battle, the new double album from Patrick Wolf.

Swinton became involved in the project after Wolf, a fan of the actress after seeing her performance in Orlando sent her a CD and hand-written note. Swinton was rather taken with the lupine artiste, and made a spoken word contribution to four tracks.

Speaking about the collaboration, Swinton said, "My feeling is that we almost certainly come from the same planet: kith and kin. His music feels like the unexpressed soundtrack of a great film I want to see – and try to catch every night before I go to sleep. It’s a lovely thing to be a part of that magical landscape."

Patrick Wolf’s new album will be released via Bandstocks. Invest a tenner in the project via the Bandstocks website.
