Wild Beasts

Albatross (3:13)

The Albatross Songfacts says: Lyrically, the song alludes to Coleridge’s classic symbol of guilt in his poem The Rime of the Ancient Mariner. With guilt comes blame and self-flagellation as Hayden Thorpe croons regretfully, “the secrets that I should have shared.”

Here I've created an information and media center that aggregates basic artist information, third party reviews, music, and music videos conveniently in one place. It also allows you to listen to music playlists grouped by genre and artist. Happy listening!
