London-based pop duo Oh Wonder has shared a brand new track titled “Don’t Let The Neighbourhood Hear.”

The plaintive track, laden with melancholy saxophone and electronic clicks, diarises the screaming matches of a couple weathering the tensions that come with being kept in a confined space together for a long time.

The accompanying black-and-white music video presents the song’s emotions from a visual, metaphorical perspective, with Anthony West in a room on fire, and Josephine Vander Gucht in one slowly filling with water. The visuals for “Don’t Let The Neighbourhood Hear” and those for “22 Break,” are previews of a short film that will be released to accompany the record.

The track is the second track to be taken from the duo’s upcoming fourth album, 22 Break, which is set for release on October 8 via Republic Records. “It’s awkward, it’s vulnerable, but it also saved us,” Josephine says of the project, which is their first new music since 2020’s No One Else Can Wear Your Crown.

It charts the struggles she and Anthony endured in their relationship during the pandemic and the accompanying emotions – loneliness, inadequacy, resentment, fears for the future – as they stared the possibility of breaking up in the face. “We were just writing songs,” continues Josephine. “We had no idea we were writing a break-up album.”

Accompanying the announcement of 22 Break was news of a 52-date world tour for 2022, beginning in Moscow on March 3. The pair played an intimate one-off live show at London’s Albany Theatre on September 30, which will be streamed globally on YouTube on October 14.

22 Break is available for pre-order. View tour dates below.
