Oh Wonder Announces New Series 'Home Tapes' + Shares First Track "Lonely Star" Out Now

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) The Oh Wonder launches a new series called Home Tapes, which will see the duo write, record, produce and release a string of new songs from their home studio in South London. The first arrives today in the form of twinkling and gently hypnotic track "Lonely Star"—listen BELOW.

It's been a whirlwind year so far for Oh Wonder—the idiosyncratic musical partnership of Anthony West and Josephine Vander Gucht. February saw them release their second U.K. Top 10 album, No One Else Can Wear Your Crown, and subsequently embark on their momentous "Wear Your Crown" World Tour to celebrate. The tour began with a magnificent homecoming show at London's Shepherd's Bush Empire but was put on hold three days later in Paris as the world was brought to a standstill.

Oh Wonder has an exceptionally prolific and self-sufficient history of making and releasing music as a band. When they first started out as a band, they wrote and released one song a month, which eventually culminated in their debut album. Now they are launching their Home Tapes series - where, once again, they plan to release music as they write and record it and keep sharing completely new songs with the world over the coming months.

The duo also recently launched #OWAtHome, where every night at 8PM GMT/4PM EST, they perform a song from one of their three albums on Instagram Live. Stay tuned for further Home Tapes releases and rescheduled North American "Wear Your Crown" tour dates to be announced soon.

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 new album, No One Else Can Wear Your Crown.
