19 AUGUST 2022 (TORONTO, ON) – Today, global pop artist Johnny Orlando releases his highly anticipated debut album, all the things that could go wrong, via Universal Music Canada/Republic Records.
From the atmospheric synthesizers of the album's opening track, "leave the light on," to the title-track closer's raw lyrics set over melancholic ukulele strums, all the things that could go wrong brims with flourishing sounds and honest discussions on romantic longing and isolation. Including the intimate track "coping (1621)," which Johnny surprised fans with on August 15, all the things that could go wrong mixes emotional introspection with lush soundscapes. "I still can't believe what she was up against," Johnny sings in "coping (1621)", and in the closing title track that follows it, Johnny further admits, "this is the happiest I've ever been / why do I feel so afraid of it... I'm thinking of all the things that could go wrong." The debut album sees Johnny Orlando collaborate on songwriting and production with artists like Alexander 23 (“everything I hate about you”), BENEE (“fun out of it”), Scott Helman (“terrible person,” “all the things that could go wrong”), The Orphanage (“you’re just drunk,” “til I met you,” “fun out of it,” “so it begins”) and many more. An album about "letting it blur," the 19-year-old singer-songwriter forges new creative ground by blurring vulnerable, piercing lyrics with bombastic and energetic sounds. See the full track listing for all the things that could go wrong further below.
Alongside his debut album, Johnny Orlando shares the visuals for his latest single, "fun out of it," featuring New Zealand alternative pop star BENEE. "Don't ever say what it is / Don't put a label on it / Cause if we let em all in / That just takes the fun out of it" Johnny and BENEE sing over electronic-infused beats. The music video portrays crowded, extravagant rooms holding secretive looks and immaculate styles, a song about self and romantic discovery. At noon EST, join Johnny Orlando for an exclusive YouTube Premium Afterparty live stream to celebrate the release of the "fun out of it (feat. BENEE)" music video and the makings of his debut album, all the things that could go wrong. Join on YouTube Premium here.
all the things that could go wrong has been a long time coming. The sweeping album – anchored by early singles “someone will love you better” (16.7 million streams), “blur” (4.8 million streams), and “you’re just drunk” (7.2 million Spotify streams) – finds the 19-year-old Canadian rising star at his emotional, lyrical, and sonic best, delivering on the promise of over a decade spent climbing the music industry ladder. Signed to Universal Music Canada / Republic Records and sporting an enviable social media – TikTok (10.4 million), Instagram (6.4 million) and YouTube (4.7 million), as well as over 3.6 million monthly Spotify listeners – Johnny is the voice a generation needed to hear, and all the things that could go wrong is the joyous result of 18 months of hard work, honesty, growth, and self-proclaimed perfectionism. Encompassing an impressive breadth of subjects – think anxiety, the pressure that comes with growing up with social media, relationship highs and lows, drinking, and more – “this is what I’ll be judged on as a benchmark,” Johnny says.
“I set out to make an album I’d want to listen to,” he adds. “And this album is everything I always dreamed it could be.”
