Wet Leg, the British duo of Rhian Teasdale and Hester Chambers, are set to unleash their debut. The duo shared that their self-titled debut will be out on April 8, 2022 on Domino Records.

To prepare us for next year’s release, Teasdale and Chambers shared “Too Late Now” and “Oh No” from that upcoming collection.

“It is about sleepwalking into adulthood,” Teasdale said in a statement about the inspiration behind “Too Late Now.” “I never imagined that my adult life would look the way it does and I guess this song reflects on some of the pressures and pulls of life. Sometimes I get really inside my head and everything can feel very overwhelming. I think this song is about accepting that life can feel a bit shit from time to time. Maybe don’t indulge that thought too much though. Just take some time for yourself. Take a breath. Have a bath. It might make you feel a bit better.”

The track’s video, directed by Fred Rowson, is out now, with the pair fitted up in striped bathrobes while blinded by cucumber slices.

The album was recorded and produced by Speedy Wunderground’s Dan Carey (“Chaise Longue” and “Angelica” were produced by Jon McMullen and Josh Mobaraki respectively). Having mostly recorded the album this April in London, Teasdale said that their lively focus during their sessions gave the record its dry sense of humor that trickles throughout.

“As a woman, there’s so much put on you, in that your only value is how pretty or cool you look,” Teasdale said. “But we want to be goofy and a little bit rude. We want to write songs that people can dance to. And we want to people to have a good time, even if that might not possible all of the time.”

In what’s left of this year, Wet Leg are performing already sold-out shows in New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, and even opening up three shows for Chvrches. Along with the album announcement, they detailed their North American tour beginning in March next year, following a string of shows in the U.K. and Netherlands in January and February. They are further scheduled to open for Idles for their first show of next year on January 16 at the Brixton Academy in London and on March 23 at Pabellon Cuervo in Mexico City.
