Oh Wonder premieres the video for their latest single “Happy”—watch HERE! The duo’s fast-approaching third album, No One Else Can Wear Your Crown, is set for release on February 7th. Oh Wonder 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.
The video for “Happy” showcases Oh Wonder as you’ve never seen them before—a highly satirical and hilarious flash-forward into the possible future of the band (and the IRL couple at the centre of it). Co-written with Sasha Sloan, “Happy” is lyrically inspired by the moment you realize you are able to wish your ex well with their new love, and actually mean it. “Happy” is further proof of Oh Wonder’s intimate way with putting modern, millennial love under the microscope.
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.
