Wye Oak Share Their First New Song Of 2019, ‘Fortune,’ And Announce A Special 2020 Tour

Wye Oak impressed in 2018 with their sixth album, The Louder I Call, The Faster It Runs, and now they have shared their first new music of this year. Today, they have released “Fortune,” an experimental indie-rock tune that features a big hook like the ones they delivered so well on the album that preceded it.

Jenn Wasner says of the song, “Life is change. Change is loss. This song is about how hard it is to let go, and the feeling of celebrating and mourning it all at once.”

The band released the new song alongside the announcement of a special run of 2020 dates, the “JOIN” tour. The band notes on Twitter, “so excited to announce a bunch of tour dates w/ a larger band playing expanded arrangements of new and old Wye Oak songs as well as some of our favorites from [Wasner and Andy Stack solo projects Flock Of Dimes and Joyero]. These performances will be very rare and very special.”
