18 FEBRUARY 2020 (Toronto, ON) - New Hope Club released their self-titled debut album on February 14th via Hollywood Records / Virgin EMI / Universal Music Canada. The 13-track album features previously released singles “Love Again”, “ Know Me Too Well” (featuring Mexican superstar Danna Paola) and “Permission”, which have amassed impressive streaming numbers and received support from Spotify, Apple Music and BBC Radio 1.
With help from renowned producer Matt Rad (One Direction, Little Mix), Iain Kirkpatrick and Jason Evigan (Dua Lipa, Jason Derulo), New Hope Club have put together an accomplished debut album that firmly positions them as one of the most exciting new bands to come out of the UK.
The band said of their debut release, “For the last three-and-a-half years we have been dreaming of releasing an album. From the day we met we have been writing songs together wherever we can, whether that be in a hotel room or on an airplane (which is where we wrote “Karma”). The album is a journey; we have grown up together, fallen in love, fallen out of love and learnt how to deal with being away from home, all at such a young age. All this time we have been dealing with these feelings by sitting down together and putting them down on paper – it’s almost like our therapy. The album really portrays our lives thus far in New Hope Club, including songs that got us to where we are today, which is why we saw it fitting to have the album self-titled as New Hope Club.” Listen here.
With plans to tour the U.S. this summer, the British trio will first embark on their second UK headline tour in April. The band will perform at the biggest venues they have headlined to date, kicking off at Dublin’s Olympia Theatre on April 5th, and then make their way around cities including Birmingham, London’s Hammersmith Eventim Apollo and Manchester before wrapping things up at Glasgow’s SWG3 on April 16th.
New Hope Club is a force to be reckoned with on social media where they have an overall reach of 10 million. They’ve picked up over 215 million total streams, garnered over 1 million YouTube subscribers and racked up over 1.6 million monthly Spotify listeners.
