Wolfe streamed the full album on Pitchfork Advance last week before its release date. Pain is Beauty is a self-described love letter to nature and a haunting, majestic exploration into the electronic realm. Pain Is Beauty is Wolfe’s third studio album and it maintains her characteristic otherworldly tone with a lingering goth-tinged, shadowy sound that envelops beauty with hints of darkness.

With newest single The Waves Have Come, Wolfe layers poignant vocals over a piano in an epic tale of heartbreak during natural disaster. Garnering a Best New Track on Pitchfork and the sentiment: “This is the kind of song Chelsea Wolfe was put on earth to make.” The artist delves further into the ideas behind the track:

“We don’t need physical things to make us feel and make us dream. When earth cracks open and swallows then we’ll never be tired again and we’ll be given everything the moment we realise we’re not in control.”
