Remi Wolf has unveiled her new song, ‘Liquor Store’.
The song is the first glimpse of Wolf’s upcoming album, which will be out later this year. The as-yet-untitled album will be the California artist’s full-length debut. It also follows the remix EP ‘We Love Dogs!’, which arrived earlier this year.
In the funky pop number, Wolf explores struggles with addiction and codependency. “Liquor store, ’cause I want morе, carnivore / Eating my heart out, liquor store / ‘Causе I always want more walking into the liquor store,” she sings.

Wolf wrote ‘Liquor Store’ after getting sober in the middle of the pandemic and going to treatment, she told BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac. “It was just the biggest life change ever for me,” she said. “I have a lot more clarity, I have a lot more ability to execute what I wanna do.”

Wolf’s previous EP ‘We Love Dogs!’ featured remixes of songs from her 2019 debut EP, ‘You’re A Dog!’ and 2020’s ‘I’m Allergic To Dogs!’ EP.
“Half of these artists are ones I studied in school and have admired since I was a teenager,” Wolf said in a release statement.
