Blue Weekend is the third studio album by English alternative rock band Wolf Alice, released in June 2021 via Dirty Hit.

Wolf Alice formed in 2010 and comprise Ellie Rowsell (vocals, guitar), Joff Oddie (guitar, vocals), Theo Ellis (bass) and Joel Amey (drums, vocals). It has been a decade since the band began as a duo of Ellie Rowsell and Joff Oddie, then later expanding to a four-piece, with Joel Amey and Theo Ellis joining the group.

It was no surprise that creating a follow-up to Visions Of A Life (2017) was a daunting task. The record was a huge success, which subsequently led to many months spent on tour; with intercontinental flights, hotels and long-bus journeys taking a toll on the band.

The band decamped to an Airbnb in Somerset, and it was here that they reconfigured who they were together, far away from festival stages, tour buses, awards shows, and fans. They cemented their friendship and set to work on some fledgling demos in a converted church.

These demos evolved into Blue Weekend, a record produced by Markus Dravs (Arcade Fire, Björk, Brian Eno, Florence + The Machine) who has aided the band in refining their sound to an even sharper point. Rowsell’s personal storytelling is at the core of Blue Weekend, an album that sees Wolf Alice embrace a newfound boldness and vulnerability in equal measure.

Blue Weekend was preceded by three singles; "The Last Man on Earth", "Smile" and "No Hard Feelings".

The album has received universal critical acclaim from music critics, with many critics naming it the band's best work. On Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating of 100, the album received an average score of 97, based on 12 reviews, indicating "universal acclaim". It is currently the highest rated album of 2021 on their website.

This album is a limited edition on transparent red coloured vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve with a lyric insert, pressed in the UK via Dirty Hit.
