Patrick Wolf to debut new song and cover Grace Jones live at Latitude

Patrick Wolf is to debut a new song from his next album The Conqueror at this month's Latitude Festival.

Speaking ahead of his Latitude gig, he told Uncut that "There is a big hit song that I have been sitting on for the sequel to The Bachelor that I have plans to debut at Latitude."

Adding: "If it goes down well, then I will enter it into the eurovision song contest. No joke."

Wolf, a multi-intrumentalist who mixes pop with baroque says he will also be treating to fans to a Grace Jones cover version in homage to the singer who headlines the bill the same day that he performs.

Wolf said: "To play on the same stage as Grace Jones is such an honor, its like winning a spiritual Grammy. I cannot express what this existence of her artistic output means to me in words so I am going to be expressing it through music and passion on the night and yes I plan to cover a Grace classic."
