An album of our times, Sad Happy is formed of two diametrically distinctive sides, which will see the Happy side released individually in the new year before uniting as one complete body of work on March 13, 2020. Happy side will be available via streaming platforms from January 10, 2020. The two sides will then be united as a full physical & digital Sad Happy album release on CD and vinyl formats on March 13, 2020.

Lead single “Jacqueline” is unveiled today as the first taste of Sad Happy. Listen here.

An infectious, Soweto-flavored groove, “Jacqueline” is another bold slice of bright, life-affirming pop from the pen of Kieran Shudall, who is establishing himself as one of Britain’s most prolific young songwriters. With its infectious chorus and refrain of “Good times are coming around the bend”, “Jacqueline” is at once instantly recognizable and also another bold sonic leap forward for Circa Waves. It’s a song that’ll sit effortlessly amongst a setlist already brimming with anthems.
