“Differently” follows Marian Hill’s previously released single, “Subtle Thing,” also taken from Unusual—watch the “Subtle Thing” video here.

Of their upcoming album, Jeremy Lloyd of Marian Hill says, “We made this album when ‘Down’ was having a moment, and we were reckoning with the fact that our music was now officially pop in the most literal sense. Our favorite pop songs have an intangible quality, something that sets them apart from just about anything else. And so, we pushed ourselves to make many, many unusual pop songs in different cities and tour buses, narrowed them down to a tight 10 and built a world for them to live in.”

 Samantha Gongol chimes in, “People often think Marian Hill is the name of a woman, but we are two songwriters who made a name for ourselves by making minimal, strong, sexy, confident music. Unusual is a continuation of that vision, where women are in control even in the most vulnerable of moments. We don’t feel strong and confident all the time, but we hope that when you listen to our music, it makes you feel that way.”

In celebration of Unusual, Marian Hill will embark on a full-scale North American headline tour this spring, including a stop at Coachella. Billed as the “UNUSUAL” tour, Los Angeles-based singer and producer Michl will serve as support. The tour kicks off April 12 in Los Angeles at The Theatre at Ace Hotel and includes stops in Brooklyn, Boston, San Francisco, Chicago, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C. and more.

Marian Hill first entered the scene when blog support led their debut single, ‘Whisky’ to a top 10 position on Hype Machine’s charts. Following the 2013 ‘Play’ and 2015 ‘Sway’ EPs, the duo quietly rose from indie favourite to pop sensation on their own terms bolstered by viral hits such as ‘Got It’ and ‘One Time’. ACT ONE’s ‘Down’ which featured on Apple’s TV campaign for iPhone 7 AirPods, eventually went platinum, racking up over 102 million Spotify streams, over 50 million Apple Music streams, reaching the top 25 on the Billboard Hot 100, and holding the #1 spot on the US Shazam chart for nearly 2 months. Act One (The Complete Collection) saw them attract cameos from heavy hitters such as Lauren Jauregui of Fifth Harmony and Big Sean, while illuminating the scope of their deep, diverse, and dynamic style. Along the way, they played sold out shows across the US and Europe (including a sold-out show at London’s Scala), captivated audiences at festivals such as Electric Forest Music Festival, Osheaga Music Festival, Lollapalooza, Outside Lands and Governor’s Ball and provided stomping performances on huge national TV shows in the US and UK including Jimmy FallonGood Morning America and Later With Jools Holland.
