Wild Things is Ladyhawke's first album release since 2012's Anxiety.
Ladyhawke worked on the album on and off over the course of a year with producer Tommy English (Børns, Tie¨sto, Dark Waves), whom she met through her L.A. neighbour, tattoo artist/musician Kat Von D.
In many ways, Wild Things is less about past demons and more a catalyst of what's to come. "This album has given me a sense of purpose. Even if it took me months or years to get that purpose, as soon as I finished that record it was like an unbelievable weight was lifted off my shoulders," she says. You can hear that freedom in Wild Things' unabashed exuberance, a powerful, vibrant expression of life itself. "Everything I wrote was all the stuff I was going through. I got it out of my system, exorcised it from my soul."
'A Love Song', the first single, is one of the deep-dives into relationships from the album - a sweeping, reverberating revelation. "'This is what a love song sounds like'- meaning it's not all sappy," she explains. "I'd lose everything if I didn't stop drinking. The other person in your life, sometimes they have to be cruel to be kind".
