Oh Wonder have revealed a second taster of their upcoming album ’22 Make’, ‘Fuck It I Love You’.
Following up on last month’s lead track ‘Magnificent’, the duo’s Josephine Vander West explains: “We clung to the demo for months, secretly hoping that we’d get to release “Fuck It I Love You” in happier times. It was almost like the song was telling us that we couldn’t break up and disband because it needed to be released. It probably kept us together!”
’22 Make’, which is set for release on 22nd July, forms a whole with last year’s ’22 Break’.
Speaking about the album, they explain: “When we nearly broke up during the pandemic, we used music as a way out. We wrote all our pain, sadness and confusion into a collection of songs that we eventually released as the album, 22 Break. But for us, that was only half of the story. We managed to survive our rocky patch, and emerge stronger than ever and full of love for each other. It only felt right therefore, to write about the other side, where you realise not just that you’re meant for each other, but also that it also takes two people to make a love flourish. We are thrilled to be releasing 22 Make, an album full of love and life-affirming songs that reflect on fate, gratitude and being there for someone.”
