Remi Wolf Drops Two New Singles Ahead of Sophomore Album

Singer-songwriter Remi Wolf has released two new singles, "Toro" and "Alone in Miami", ahead of her sophomore album Big Ideas, set to drop on July 12 via Island Records. The two tracks, written in the same week in the studio, showcase the sonic diversity of the upcoming album.

Wolf wrote both songs with friends Ethan Gruska and Jack Demeo in LA in early 2022. "Toro" is a song about having sex in a hotel, while "Alone in Miami" is a detailed account of Wolf'sweek-long solo tripto Miami during Art Basel in 2022."In my mind, they have always been intended to be listened to back to back,"Wolf said in a press release.

"Toro" epitomizes Wolf's vibrant, layered sound, featuring guitar flourishes in the pre-chorus and a particularly raspy vocal on the second verse. The song demands full attention, with Wolf singing,"You're a bull, and I can't help but saying toro"over a pulsing bass. "Toro" has a subtle sincerity, with confessions of wanting more snuck between blatantly lustful quips, making it a three-dimensional and honest track.

Wolf's music is characterized by her embrace of the unexpected, with melodies that don't quite go where the listener anticipates and no moment of silence wasted. Her ability to leverage funk turns what might otherwise be a straightforward track into a full-on playground. "These two songs showcase the sonic breadth of this album – and you can't put me into a box bitch so don't even try," Wolf emphasized.

Wolf's last album, Juno, was released in 2021 and featured songs like "Liquor Store", "Sexy Villain", and "Anthony Kiedis". The musician has been open about her partying habits, stating that she's been partying since she was 18 and has mostly gotten it out of her system in the past decade.

Wolf is currently on tour in Europe as a special guest on Olivia Rodrigo's Gutsworld tour. The tour includes stops in major cities like Birmingham, London, Antwerp, Amsterdam, Oslo, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Berlin, Hamburg, Frankfurt, Munich, Bologna, Zurich, Cologne, Paris, Barcelona, Madrid, and Lisbon.

Remi Wolf's new singles "Toro" and "Alone in Miami" are now available to stream on Spotify and Apple Music. Her sophomore albumBig Ideas, featuring these tracks along with the previously released "Cinderella", is set to release on July 12 via Island Records. As Mary Siroky, Associated Editor, aptly puts it,"Remi Wolf is the much-needed jolt of lightning to the space, serving as a sharp reminder that creating music that is fun and enjoyable shouldn't prevent it from beinginteresting and expertly constructedtoo."
