Oh Land Confirms North American Tour Dates Around “Wish Bone” Album Release This Fall

Danish alterna-pop chanteuse Oh Land, a.k.a. Nanna Øland Fabricius, will embark on a North American tour this fall in support of her highly-anticipated new album Wish Bone, due out September 24 (Federal Prism). Kicking off September 20 in Brooklyn, the 5-week headlining run will make stops in Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago, Washington DC, Seattle, San Francisco and more before wrapping up in Los Angeles on October 24. Details are below.

 

Featuring her distinctive brand of left-field pop, Wish Bone features collaborations with TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek, as well as additional contributions from Sia, WNDRBRD and Dan Carey, among others. The album will be released on Sitek’s boutique label Federal Prism, joining a roster that includes TV On The Radio, Chuck Inglish, CSS, Priscilla Ahn, and more

 

Oh Land recently unveiled the video for the energetic new single “Renaissance Girls.” Taking inspiration from her past in ballet, the video features light-hearted choreography juxtaposed by the harshness of an abandoned warehouse setting. The video, premiered by Rolling Stone, is available to watch and embed via the links below.

On Wish Bone, Oh Land’s approach to songwriting was grounded in her hunger to be present in her immediate surroundings, accepting the limitations of reality rather than creating an idealized fantasy world. Spending time writing in Los Angeles and New York, Oh Land found inspiration in the limits of her own physicality (a disciplined ballet dancer, her career was sidelined by a crippling back injury) and found freedom within those restrictions.

 

For the recording of the album, Oh Land collaborated with Dave Sitek, holing up in his studio in Los Angeles and allowing the process to reflect the spontaneity of everyday life. “The collaboration was very intuitive,” explains Oh Land. “”We didn’t plan what we wanted to do, we just pressed record and played a million different instruments. We were both eager for the songs to sound likes the lives we were living at the time, so we kept some of the ‘mistakes’ on purpose, maintaining the integrity of what was delivered in the moment.” Fittingly, the album was recorded using analog equipment and features brass horns, harp, and even a choir all recorded live. The result is Oh Land’s most raw and immediate album yet.

 

Wish Bone is the long-awaited follow up to Oh Land’s 2011 self-titled album that garnered overwhelming acclaim, with SPIN declaring it one of “20 best pop albums of 2011,” and Details praising it’s “fizzy, danceable electro-pop in the mode of Lykke Li and Florence and the Machine.”
