Wild Man Lyrics
What it's about: A yeti...
Running time: 4:17 and 7:17 (see below)
Wild Man was Kate's first all new material in (almost exactly) six years.  Deeper Understanding was released as a single six months earlier, but this was the first "new" song since King of the Mountain in 2005.
Wild Man entered the UK chart in its second week of release at #73, on October 22, 2011.  Like the single that preceded it (Deeper Understanding), it held on for only one week...
It's a digital only release, so it has no picture cover.  The image shown above is from the EU promo CD single.
UK (and internet) fans got the first listen of the 4:17 radio edit version of the song on the Ken Bruce radio show on BBC 2, at 11:15AM (UK time) on October 10th. 
Ken Bruce also treated the world to the first spins of King Of The Mountain (six years earlier) and Deeper Understanding (six months earlier) on the same show.
The radio debut was supposed to be one day earlier than the worldwide digital release, but Amazon UK had both the radio edit and the full 7:17 version available for download within a few hours.
