Oh Wonder Announce 'No One Else Can Wear Your Crown' Album & Tour, Drop Single 'I Wish I Never Met You'

Oh Wonder think it's a little too late to say "I Wish I Never Met You" in the London-based duo's latest whimsical, remorseful single released today (Nov. 14). "I Wish I Never Met You" is the third single to precede their upcoming third studio album No One Else Can Wear Your Crown, which will be out Feb. 7.

The duo, comprised of Anthony West and Josephine Vander Gucht, wrote and self-produced the 10 tracks featured on the forthcoming LP in their own home studio. No One Else Can Wear Your Crown explores life on the road and comes full-circle to the seemingly mundane moments at home -- from feelings of accomplishment found in reflection post tours to feelings of worry about how to take care of a dog when returning to being on the road. 

They ask and answer the big questions of life, all capsuled in the album's overall message of self-acceptance and empowerment in the midst of regret and hurt -- the latter of which "I Wish I Never Met You" tackles in its spellbound glamor. "Nothing hurts like being blindsided by love / Nothing hurts like thinking I'm not good enough," they harmonize before the chorus flies in with the song's wonderstruck instrumentals. 

Not only do they navigate life's biggest highs and lows, Oh Wonder is ready to travel throughout North America and Europe on their Wear Your Crown world tour, which kicks off Mar. 3 at Glasgow's SWG3 Galvanisers. Tickets go on sale to the general public next Friday, Nov. 22 at 9 a.m. local time, which can be found here
