OH WONDER RELEASE SURPRISE CHRISTMAS SONG, “THIS CHRISTMAS”
BRAND NEW ALBUM, NO ONE ELSE CAN WEAR YOUR CROWN, OUT FEBRUARY 7
WORLD TOUR ON SALE NOW
29 NOVEMBER 2019 (TORONTO, ON) - Oh Wonder have today released surprise new Christmas song "This Christmas", which is available now on Island Records/Universal Music Canada, the country's leading music company. The duo recently confirmed details of third album No One Else Can Wear Your Crown, which will be released on February 7th and includes recent tracks "Hallelujah", "Better Now" and "I Wish I Never Met You". The duo have also confirmed international dates for the ‘Wear Your Crown Tour’, with a London date at Shepherds Bush Empire selling out immediately.
"This Christmas" is an affecting Christmas gift (with a twist) from Oh Wonder, setting cinematic strings and seasonal sleigh-bells to those moments when the “festive” period feels anything but. “We understand that the holidays can be a tough time for some people,” say Oh Wonder, “because they don’t necessarily have the ones they love around them. We wrote ‘This Christmas’ to acknowledge that it can be difficult and lonely, and hope it provides some comfort to anyone who is missing someone.”

Tackling dark topics with a lightness of touch – whether at Christmas, or all-year-round – is intrinsic to the appeal of Oh Wonder. The duo have amassed a huge global following along the way, with a top 10 album, a billion streams, and global sold-out tours (see over 300,000 tickets sold). It’s a personal and creative journey that scales new heights on Oh Wonder’s third album, No One Else Can Wear Your Crown, which was written and self-produced in the band’s home studio before being co-mixed with Cenzo Townshend (Bat For Lashes, Christine & The Queens, Jungle).
Oh Wonder have proved themselves a band able to capture those extreme highs and lows of everyday life. No One Else Can Wear Your Crown tackles everything from cheating exes ("I Wish I’d Never Met You"), self-doubt ("Hallelujah") and the hospital waiting room ("Better Now") to the realities of modern-day relationships (the band’s own included). It’s difficult not to leave feeling uplifted and entirely convinced of the quiet power of Oh Wonder. 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. For now though - Merry Christmas from Oh Wonder.
