Vulfpeck Reveals Eight New Songs And Two Familiar Ones For ‘The Beautiful Game’

first_imgCome October 17th, funky wonders Vulfpeck will release their newest full-length LP, The Beautiful Game. With the band just wrapping up a four-night run through New York from Wednesday – Saturday, fans have been dying to know what music will be featured on the new LP. Today, that changes, as the band has released both the full tracklisting and an excerpt of liner notes from the new album.The band did play one new song – titled “Cory Wong” – from the new album during their SummerStage performance, but have been tight-lipped about everything else thusfar. They also said, on Saturday night, that their performance of “Conscious Club” would be the last time it was played as an instrumental in America, leading us to believe that the version that appears in the new tracklisting has a fresh set of lyrics. This wouldn’t be the first time that Vulfpeck added lyrics to one of their older songs, as “Christmas In L.A.” made its debut as an instrumental on the 2014 album Fugue State before being lyricized for the 2015 album Thrill Of The Arts.In all, the new album has ten songs, eight of which are completely unfamiliar. It’s interesting that the band chose not to play any of them during their Brooklyn Bowl run, but the reward will come when listening to these new songs through fresh ears. The liner notes also indicate a number of featured guests on the album.Check out the tracklisting and liners below, courtesy of the Vulfpeck. You can also find more about the album on the band’s Kickstarter page.You can see the liner notes for the album below:last_img read more
