Oh Wonder – This Christmas

Oh Wonder drops a surprise Christmas song “This Christmas”—listen HERE! The duo recently confirmed details of their third album, No One Else Can Wear Your Crown, which will be released on February 7th, 2020 and includes recent tracks “Hallelujah,” “Better Now” and “I Wish I Never Met You.” The duo has also confirmed international dates for the “Wear Your Crown Tour,” which is on sale now at www.ohwondermusic.com. See a full list of dates below.

“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. Oh Wonder says, “We understand that the holidays can be a tough time for some people 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 has amassed a huge global following along the way, with a top 10 album, a billion streams and global sold-out tours with 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 has 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 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.
