LISTEN – Wye Oak “Fortune” + JOIN Tour

November 12th, 2019

Wye Oak share bombastic new single “Fortune” and 2020 JOIN tour dates. Jenn Wasner and Andy Stack returned to the studio in the summer of 2019, and the result is the most generous and daring material of the duo’s career. The first look into this new music is the searing single “Fortune,” about which Wasner says: “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.”

Living in the same city (their adopted home of Durham, NC) for the first time since 2012 has given Wasner and Stack the opportunity to chart a new path, and to re-examine and rework the pre-existing confines of their long-standing musical partnership. In addition to releasing new material, the group is mounting their most ambitious tour yet. Called JOIN, the tour will feature a newly expanded live band performing Wye Oak’s music and songs from Stack and Wasner’s respective solo projects, Joyero and Flock of Dimes, and beyond.
