Oh Wonder have shared a brand new track, ‘True Romance’.
The song is taken from their new album, ’22 Make’, which is set to arrive on 22nd July.
Following up on the already released ‘Fuck It I Love You’ and ‘Magnificent’, the track is inspired by the 1993 film of the same name.
Speaking about ‘True Romance’, Josephine Vander West explains: “We recorded it three different times. It started out being way more pop and fast and really intense, but realised that it translated beautifully just singing it at the piano; it’s actually quite a simple, beautiful chorus. So we slowed it down, chilled out the production and let the song breathe a little more.”
’22 Make’ forms a second half to last year’s ’22 Break’.
“When we nearly broke up during the pandemic, we used music as a way out,” the duo reveal. “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.”
