OH WONDER release video for new single 'Happy' - Watch Now

Oh Wonder has today premiered the brilliant video for latest single ‘Happy’ – out now on Island Records. The unique London band’s third album – ‘No One Else Can Wear Your Crown’ – is released on February 7th.

The ‘Happy’ video 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 realise 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.

Watch the video for ‘Happy’ – BELOW:

‘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 a Brixton Academy, amongst 300,000 worldwide tickets sold) and others from taking a break and reflecting on all that they’ve accomplished as a band so far (top 10 albums, a billion streams, 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 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 appear 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.
