“If you look back at old interviews from the last 10 years,” Strauss said, “any time I was asked about collaborating with a vocalist in the future, Alissa White-Gluz was always the first name out of my mouth. She is truly one of my favorite vocalists and performers in the industry and creating this track together was everything I hoped it would be!
“I’m very proud to release this track, especially now with everything else that’s going on. This time in history, whether in politics, music, social media, or our personal lives, has been an eye opening look into the two wolves of a lot of people out there, and maybe this song will be a reminder that we all have the ability to choose how we respond to things.
“The lyrics of this song were inspired by ‘The Story of the Two Wolves,’ a legend widely attributed to Native American storytellers.”
White-Gluz said: “Nita and I finally got to collaborate – something we have both wanted to do for years! ‘The Wolf You Feed’ is a kickass, catchy metal track with a really cool vibe. I kept the ‘“’two wolves’”’ analogy as a foundation throughout the song while playing up the dichotomy of the two sides of the tug-of-war we all have inside us. I recorded my parts in my home studio and it was an absolute pleasure to build this song with Nita. I am honoured to be a part of it! Can’t wait to do this again!
“The Wolf You Feed” is the second song Strauss has released featuring a guest vocalist, the first being the “Dead Inside,” which featured guest vocals from Disturbed’s David Draiman and saw her become the first-ever solo female to have a number one hit at Active Rock Radio. She also returned to her instrumental roots earlier this year with the release of “Summer Storm.” Combined, the two singles have had 3.5 million YouTube views and over 10 million streams on Spotify alone.
