Angus & Julia Stone


Angus & Julia Stone are finally returning with a new album.

The acclaimed indie folk band today announced their sixth studio album, Cape Forestier, set for release May. According to a press release, the album “plays like a storybook from the hearts and minds of Angus & Julia Stone, with each song revealing itself as a different page.”

One of those songs, “The Wedding Song”, was released today as the album’s lead single, and was originally penned 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 mum’s, and we received so many requests from fans for a proper recording to use on their special day, so we decided to make that happen,” they explain.

Angus & Julia Stone chose “The Wedding Song” as the first single “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,” they add.

“The Wedding Song” is accompanied by a heartfelt music video, which features a touching montage from the band’s fans’ weddings (watch below).

“We had hundreds of videos 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,” they say of the video.

Cape Forestier, perhaps taking its name from the Tasmanian peninsula, is the long-anticipated follow-up to Angus & Julia Stone’s last studio album, Snow, which was certified Gold in 2017. The band released a compilation album, Life Is Strange, in 2021, while Angus also released an album, Kimosabè, under his DOPE LEMON moniker last year.

Following the release of their new album in May, Angus & Julia Stone will embark on a ‘Living Room Sessions’ tour. Tickets are available now via the band’s official website.

Angus & Julia Stone’s “The Wedding Song” is out now. Cape Forestier is out May 10th via Sony Music Australia (pre-save/pre-order here).
