Fans can pre-order the album here, and excitement is building for the duo’s North American tour, kicking off this November. Tickets are available for purchase here. To go alongside the announcement, their latest single ‘I Did You Wrong‘ is also out today.
Joy (Anonymous) showcase their versatility and artistic prowess in the upcoming album by effortlessly blends elements of house, disco, soul, and exquisite songwriting. The album also reflects the remarkable journey of the duo. From their humble beginnings during the pandemic, hosting legendary pop-up parties, to touring the world and collaborating with the likes of Jyoty and Skrillex, the duo has come a long way. Cult Classics captures the full spectrum of emotions, celebrating life’s joys and navigating its darker moments.
“Cult Classics is the soundtrack of Joy Anonymous meetings over the past two years. It began in Imogen Heap’s house in Romford. where we spent two weeks working with various friends and new collaborators to form the skeletons of what was to become the album you hear today. Then we took these sounds on tour and tested them out in meetings around the world, honing and developing the sound on the move. Joy Anonymous is a movement where people feel included and feel safe to share expression and emotion. We have tried to capture that in the sound, process and delivery of this album,” says Joy (Anonymous).
To get a taste of what’s to come, listen to ‘I Did You Wrong’ below which features Henry Counsell’s soulful vocals set against a backdrop reminiscent of The Avalanches’ bittersweet tones.
