“WEAR YOUR CROWN TOUR” ON SALE NOW
 
LISTEN HERE 

The new track arrives just weeks before the band’s fast-approaching third album, No One Else Can Wear Your Crown, is released on February 7th. The duo has also unveiled international dates for the “Wear Your Crown Tour,” which is on sale now at www.ohwondermusic.com. See a full list of dates below.

“Happy” is the fourth glimpse at what is to come from Oh Wonder’s highly anticipated third album, and once again finds the band putting modern, millennial love under the microscope. Inspired by the moment you realize you are able to wish your ex well with their new love, and actually mean it, “Happy” was in fact written by the band about Anthony’s ex-girlfriend; an irony that isn’t lost on the band who sing the track together, as a couple.

No One Else Can Wear Your Crown was written and self-produced in Oh Wonder’s own home studio, before being co-mixed with Cenzo Townshend (Bat For Lashes, Christine & The Queens, Jungle). In its 10-track entirety, it’s a record that explores a host of different emotions and experiences—some forged on the road on their last world tour, which included 300,000 world-wide tickets sold, and others from taking a break and reflecting on all that they’ve accomplished as a band so far, which includes a Top 10 album, a billion streams worldwide and global sold out tours.

It’s therefore unsurprising that No One Else Can Wear Your Crown has an overriding message of self-acceptance, empowerment and joy. It’s there in their brand new single “Happy,” as much as it’s in the Carpe Diem chorus of first single “Hallelujah”—a song of defiance that Josephine and Anthony wrote for anyone that has ever been told they can’t do something.

Ultimately, it’s difficult not to leave No One Else Can Wear Your Crown feeling uplifted and entirely convinced of the power of Oh Wonder. Recharged and ready for the next chapter, Oh Wonder appears more able than ever to just make it work: whether navigating the big questions of how to live and work with your partner down to the everyday drama of what happens to your dog now you have to go back on tour. No One Else Can Wear Your Crown is a candid, restorative set that offers a welcome antidote to our turbulent times, from a band firmly writing their own bright future. Ask, believe, receive.

ABOUT OH WONDER:
What started with the relatively modest ambition of uploading one track a month
for a year on Soundcloud quickly transformed the lives of Josephine Vander Gucht
and Anthony West,
who make up London-based alt-pop duo Oh
Wonder
. Five years, two billion streams and more than a million
record sales globally down the line – as well as a top 10 album in the U.K.,
and sold-out shows around the world and 300,000 global headline tickets – have
led to where Oh Wonder find themselves in 2019: a truly modern-day success
story, and one which, like the best of things, appears to have largely been a
happy accident. The same, too, could be said of the friendship between
Josephine and Anthony, whose magnetic intimacy on and off-stage has evolved (as
many fans speculated) into romantic relationship, with all the highs and lows
that come from living, working and doing just about everything else with your
partner. As much as their new singles push the sound of the band forward, for
Josephine and Anthony (who still write, record and produce all their music
themselves in their home studio), it also represents that confidence – to open
up and to go back to your roots – which has been paramount to their approach on
their upcoming album No One
Else Can Wear Your Crown
