Alison Wonderland details sophomore album AWAKE, shares new single
The Australian electronic heavyweight takes on more of a pop-centric sound on the latest tease from the album, which will arrive on April 6.
The road to Alison Wonderland's second album AWAKE has been a long ride, but it's finally getting close. After teasing the album with two big singles thus far – Happy Place and Church – the Sydney-born, but now LA-based electronic heavyweight has officially announced the record's final details, sharing the release date and tracklisting with another album cut in No. No highlights a more pop-centric side to Alison Wonderland than we've really been acquainted with thus far, combining her bubbly vocals with a house-y production heavy on vocal samples, which is a bit of a step away from the trappier sounds of Happy Place and to a degree, Church. Despite breaking out of her comfort zone a little with No, Alison Wonderland feels more confident and assured on the single than many of the singles throughout her career so far, which is a good sign that AWAKE will showcase a brighter side of Alison Wonderland which may see her move more into mainstream appeal.
AWAKE, which is out April 6th, arrives ahead of a landmark performance at Coachella where she plays at her highest billing yet, with a bunch of east-coast launch parties to follow shortly after. The launch parties, in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane respectively, are strictly limited, with attendees required to pre-order AWAKE for the chance to cop entry.
