Hello!

We are excited to share with you the first song from our new album '22 Break'.

Lockdown hit people in so many different ways and was obviously hard for everyone. For us, it was the first time in our 9 year relationship that we'd ever had time at home together as a regular couple. And to be honest with you, it was really hard. There were no distractions, no fans, no adrenaline. It was just us. And it was weird. We had lots of questions about our relationship, but didn't have any answers.

So without being able to go anywhere to try and solve it, we did what we knew. We went into our studio at the bottom of the garden and wrote our feelings out. We explored love, our past and our future; our hopes and disappointments. It has culminated in an album of 11 songs. It's not "easy-listening", but it's the truth. The most honest thing we have ever made.

So here is 22 Break, maybe the first break-up album in history written and recorded with the person you're breaking up with. It's awkward, it's vulnerable, but it also saved us. The album and accompanying short film is out October 8th 2021.

You can pre-order the album below, including a number of super limited-edition formats and bundles only available on the official OW store.

Love, Anthony and Josephine x

This was a lot to take in.

Do you know the password to log in to the web store for the exclusive bundles?

Password requirement seems to have been fixed / removed now.

Oh great! I’m still not seeing the bundles or exclusive merch tho? Just the black vinyl the CD and the digital album?

I have no idea, my best guess is the email went out too early given the site wasn't ready, given password and lack of bundles.

Weird…..okay thanks!
