One of the songs that introduced folk singer-songwriter Ben Howard to the British public in early 2011, "The Wolves" was released as a single on June 3, 2011 as a digital download, entering the UK Singles Chart at #97. Eight months later it was given a full single release on February 27, 2012, this time reaching the top 75.
The song finds Howard using fairy tale lyrics to lament about human nature, as he sings with a tortured cry, "We've lost faith in the arms of love."
When "Nothin' On You" reached #1 on the Hot 100, B.o.B became the first American act whose name is a palindrome to top the chart. The other two who did so prior to the Atlanta rapper were both Scandinavian groups - ABBA and A-Ha.
