Wolf's albums have veered from meticulously crafted electro-folk (2003's debut 'Lycanthropy') to Madonna-esque pop-posturing (2005's 'The Magic Position'), but consistent across all his records have been themes of isolation, restlessness and, in his own words, "running away from life".
Which is precisely what makes 'Lupercalia' such a landmark album for the 27-year-old.

'The City' is out 14 March and 'Lupercalia' is out on 30 May.
