Oh Wonder Returns With New Song “Hallelujah”
- London-based alt-pop duo Oh Wonder released a new song “Hallelujah” on September 6th, which is an inspiring personal anthem worthy of its name.
Originally, the release was aimed for June or July, but was delayed until September for unknown reasons.
The track follows up their 2017 sophomore album "Ultralife". In addition to the song, the duo premiered a music video directed by Gregory Ohrel.
The duo said of the song in press release, “Hallelujah” is a song of defiance that we wrote for anyone that has ever been told they can’t do something. As music-making teenagers, we were both discouraged by naysayers who declared that we would never be successful, that we weren’t good enough, and that we could never be superstars, so we should just give up. When we met each other, we bonded over our shared experiences of setbacks and near-misses, and set ourselves the highly unrealistic goal of releasing music and touring the world. After two albums and a world tour of 43 countries, we have only recently had a chance to process the last 5 years. “Hallelujah” is a reminder to ourselves, as much as anyone else, to not care what people think of you, to work hard, be yourself and try your best. It’s our personal anthem of self-acceptance that we hope will encourage others to “wear their crowns”, no matter what anyone else says.”
