Atlantic recording group Why Don’t We has released their highly anticipated, debut full length album, 8 LETTERS. Arriving overnight, the album immediately shot to #1 on iTunes’ Overall Album chart ahead of artists like Ariana Grande, Drake, and BTS.
8 LETTERS was preceded by a trio of wildly popular tracks, “Hooked,” “Talk,” and, most recently, the album’s infectious title track. The songs have collectively garnered over 43 million streams on Spotify alone in under 3 months in advance of today’s album release; their companion videos have logged an additional 38 million views on YouTube.
Amassing more than 200 million global audio streams, 3 million Instagram followers, and total You Tube views exceeding 250 million with over 2 million subscribers in under 2 years, Why Don’t We has become one of pop music’s biggest breakout stories.
Taking an innovative and unconventional approach towards releasing new music and actively engaging their rapidly growing fanbase, the prolific young group – the quintet ranges in age from 17-20 years old – put out four EPs in under 12 months.
The group closed 2017 on a high note, performing on the entire iHeartRadio Jingle Ball Tour, including the NYC stop at Madison Square Garden where they shared the stage with Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, Camilla Cabello and more.
The band has sold out back-to-back North American headlining tours, including their biggest trek to date earlier this year that was highlighted by multiple nights in NYC, LA, Chicago, and Toronto. High profile national television appearances include performances on NBC’s TODAY, ABC’s Good Morning America, nationally syndicated Live with Kelly and Ryan, and more. Press highlights include features in Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, Billboard, and TIME among others.
WHY DON’T WE are: Daniel Seavey, Zach Herron, Corbyn Besson, Jonah Marais, and Jack Avery.
