Wild Child’s New Album ‘Expectations’ Out Now

Wild Child Release 'Expectations'
Wild Child by Sean Daigle

Austin’s Wild Child are thrilled to release their new record, Expectations, out now on Dualtone Records. Eagerly anticipated by the band’s 1.6 million monthly listeners on Spotify, Expectations has also seen Wild Child achieve their strongest radio play yet, with lead single ‘Think It Over’ one of the most added songs at AAA radio in recent weeks and building. The band also recently reached the impressive milestone of 75 Million aggregate streams on Spotify for their catalog. After completing a run of Texas album release shows this week, they’ll embark on an extensive North American and UK/European tour from March through May in support of the record. All upcoming tour dates are listed below.

Wild Child are also excited to debut the brand new music video for the album’s title track. The video for “Expectations” is the first in a series of six music videos shot for the songs on the album.

The band traveled far and wide in order to work with multiple producers (and accomplished musicians in their own right) on the album, including Chris Walla (formerly Death Cab For Cutie), Chris Boosahda (Shakey Graves), Scott McMicken (Dr. Dog), and Adrian Quesada (Grupo Fantasma). Earlier this week, the band participated in a Consequence of Sound Facebook livestream, aptly titled “Wild Child Power Hour,” in which they premiered Expectations in full, told stories about the different songs on the album, and took a beer/wine shot a minute while answering fan-submitted questions in real time.
