Joy Anonymous announce new album ‘Cult Classics’ and share single ‘I Did You Wrong’

"‘Cult Classics' is the soundtrack of Joy Anonymous meetings over the past two years"

Joy Anonymous have announced their new album ‘Cult Classic’ and have shared their latest single ‘I Did You Wrong’.

Speaking of the LP in a press release, the London-based dance duo – comprised of Henry Counsell and Louis Curran – said: “‘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.”

They continued: “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.”


To celebrate the announcement of their album, Joy Anonymous have also released the lead single of the LP, ‘I Did You Wrong’. The track features Counsell’s soulful vocals over a beat that recalls the bittersweet tones of The Avalanches.

Speaking of the single, the duo shared: “‘I Did You Wrong’ is a song written about a personal journey on discovering joy and the wrong turns taken, to find that joy is just embracing all feelings, not just putting a smile on.”

‘Cult Classic’ is set for release on November 3 via Island Records. Pre-order the album here.
