Share tender ballad “The Wedding Song” + 2024 North American, EU & UK tour dates

Since bursting onto the scene in 2010 with their multi-platinum hit “Big Jet Plane,” beloved sibling duo Angus & Julia Stone have become a catalyst artist that has gone on to inspire a whole new generation of songwriters. Their music has proven to be timeless.

Along with the announcement of a new album, Cape Forestier, the Aussie duo shared a delicate ballad titled “The Wedding Song.” Set out to write the perfect love song, they passed with flying colours in this magical melody. Julia’s effortless vocals take center stage in a song that has been in their repertoire but never made it on tape until now.

“We’ve received so many requests from fans for a proper recording to use on their special day, so we decided to make that happen,” Angus & Julia explain. “‘The Wedding Song’ was originally written for a friend’s wedding years ago. Since then, we’ve been honoured to play it at several friends’ and family’s weddings, including our mums… We chose it as our first single from our upcoming record because it’s all about love. The song is a celebration of love and human connection. In a world that can feel disconnected and frightening, we want to share something that reflects the beauty of how humans choose to treat each other, love each other, and make promises to build something beautiful together.”

Along with the song A&J share a music video comprised of wedding footage from fans. It feels as if they are playing at all their fans weddings, providing a deeply emotional and moving experience. “We put out a call to fans for footage from their weddings, and the response was overwhelming,” they explain. “Hundreds of videos were uploaded, capturing incredibly loving moments in people’s lives from all over the world. It reinforces the idea that, ultimately, we all share the same desire: to love and be loved.”

“Making music has always been pretty simple for us… just something we have to do.” Angus continues, “life is complicated, confusing and strange at times but music isn’t. Not for us. It’s just something we do to feel normal.”

It’s this language of music that forms the basis of Angus and Julia Stone’s new album, Cape Forestier – a collection of heartfelt songs that share the sound of their extraordinary journey together. The new album plays out like a storybook from the hearts and minds of Angus and Julia Stone – reminiscent of their earlier records, with each song revealing itself as a different page. Whether it’s the rhythmic strum, relaxed feel and beautiful lyrical adventure of the title track “Cape Forestier,” the seductive opening track “Losing You,” the emotive and touching “The Wedding Song,” or the gentle front porch sway of “County Sign,” it seems clear that Angus and Julia Stone were born to be musicians at heart.

 Whether they are labelled as folky, acoustic, or indie-rock is not a concern for the duo. “It has never been about a stylistic choice; we make it how we make it,” says Angus. Julia adds, “We are two people who play music because, well, just because. We are endlessly surprised and honoured that people get something from it – it makes it so much more special to share it with a community.”
