Oh Land Releases Highly-Anticipated New Album 'Wish Bone'
Oh Land's highly-anticipated new album Wish Bone is available to stream now at The New York Times, a week in advance of its September 24 release on Federal Prism. Early acclaim for the album comes from NYLON, who asserts "With her previous release, Oh Land broke through the international sound wall. Now she's dropping a bomb," from USA Today, who declares it "punchy and dance-ready," and with ELLE, who praises "imaginative, playful songs."
The Danish alterna-pop chanteuse, a.k.a. Nanna Øland Fabricius, kicks off her 5-week North American headlining tour on September 20 at the Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn. Details on the tour dates can be found below.
In anticipation of the album release and tour, Oh Land just released a music video for her song "Pyromaniac." Feel free to watch & embed the video via the links 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 energetic new single "Renaissance Girls." Taking inspiration from Oh Land's past in ballet, the video features light-hearted choreography juxtaposed by the harshness of an abandoned warehouse setting.
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.
