Beatie Wolfe Releases New Music With Multi-Platinum Producer Linda Perry

Singer-songwriter and artist Beatie Wolfe first came to our attention last year when she held her acclaimed solo-exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum. Always open to doing things that nobody else has tried before, Beatie has had her music beamed into space, and was appointed a UN role model for innovation. Beatie’s latest project is her new track, co-written and produced by multi-platinum selling producer, Linda Perry, and her empowering label, ‘We Are Hear‘, which she co-founded with Kerry Brown. ‘Barely Living’ is an Americana style song, and is out today April 12.

‘Barely Living’ was mixed by Billy Bush, of Garbage, and Muse, and mastered by Emily Lazar, who was the first female Grammy winner for mastering. Its release coincides with a trailer for a documentary on Beatie’s work, ‘Beatie Wolfe: Orange Juice For The Ears – From Space Beams To Anti-Streams‘, commissioned by the Barbican. Directed by LA indie videographer Ross Harris, who’s worked with and photographed Beck among others, the documentary includes new single ‘Barely Living’, and saw its premiere at SXSW this year. It will also feature at the LA Times Newstory Festival. It is part of the Barbican’s ‘Life Rewired’ series, a season exploring what it means to be a human, when technology is changing everything.

Beatie Wolfe was named by WIRED Magazine as one of “22 Folk Changing The World”, and leads the way when it comes to pioneering different formats for music, reuniting tangibility, storytelling, and ceremony with the album in this digital age. Wolfe has created a series of world’s-first designs that bridge the physical and digital, including: a 3D vinyl for the palm of your hand; an intelligent album deck of cards; a wearable record jacket – cut by the tailor who dressed Bowie and Hendrix out of fabric woven with Wolfe’s music – and most recently the world’s first live 360 AR stream from the quietest room on earth and a Space Beam via the Big Bang Horn.
