Wolf Alice Showcase Reflective Single ‘The Last Man on Earth’ on ‘Fallon’

Wolf Alice appeared on The Tonight Show to perform a cinematic version of “The Last Man on Earth” with the help of a choir. The ethereal song will appear on the band’s forthcoming album, Blue Weekend, out June 11th via Dirty Hit/RCA Records.

In the clip, the camera circles singer Ellie Rowsell as she sings the evocative song along with a small choir and the rest of Wolf Alice.

Blue Weekend is the follow-up to 2018’s Mercury Prize-winning Visions of a Life and is available for preorder. Following a rigorous tour schedule behind Visions of a Life, the band began working on demos in a converted church, which served as the basis for their Markus Dravs-produced third album Blue Weekend. The group previously released a video for “The Last Man on Earth,” directed by Jordan Hemingway.

Roswell shared that the song is about “the arrogance of humans” when it was released last month. “I’d just read Kurt Vonnegut’s Cat’s Cradle and I had written the line ‘Peculiar travel suggestions are dancing lessons from god’ in my notes,” she said in a statement. “But then I thought: ‘Uh, your peculiar travel suggestion isn’t a dancing lesson from god, it’s just a travel suggestion! Why does everything need to mean something more?’”
