Black Sheep is the debut studio album by American sibling duo Nat & Alex Wolff, released on October 11, 2011, by Saddleup Records. Looking to recreate the sound from their previous band releases, the Wolffs strived to create a more mature, rock sound.
The album was recorded in New York in mid-2009 and in Los Angeles over a six-week period from March to April 2010. The song "Losing You to the Crowd" was written by Alex while he and his family were on vacation in Australia for the 2009 Kid's Choice Awards in Melbourne.
Various demos and covers were recorded to promote not only the brothers, but also their official website. Those songs include The Beatles' song "A Hard Day's Night" and Bruce Springsteen's "Dancing in the Dark."
Promotion and release
The brothers filmed their own web series from September to December 2010, and in February 2011. These webisodes were released online weekly on their YouTube page and featured snippets of tracks from their upcoming album.
The song "Thump Thump Thump" was written by younger brother Alex Wolff.
The brothers have said they were inspired by bands such as Nirvana, Weezer and The Beatles. The music on Black Sheep is more alternative in nature than their previous works, and Nat has said the album is more sophisticated and that he feels he has developed as a songwriter. The boys did not want the same style of music they were known for during their run as The Naked Brothers Band.
