Today, Alison Wonderland shared her new single, ‘Bad Things’, a deeply personal song that she says is about “confronting your demons and dealing with them.” The track features a bruised string section circling her earworm vocal, ahead of a tough and blissful drop, and showcases her expert handle on light and shade – hallmarks of the very best electronic music.
Directed by Peter Don and produced by Satien Mehta, the ‘Bad Things’ video was filmed on location at an eerie rustic ranch in Santa Clarita, CA, and explores themes of dealing with one’s demons.
‘Bad Things’, Wonderland’s first new music of 2020, is the first single from her forthcoming album, planned for 2021. The Los Angeles-based, Australian artist/producer debuted the song during her Virtual Lollapalooza 2020 set. Combined career streams of Wonderland’s songs have now surpassed 500 million. Each of her two previous albums – ‘Run’ and ‘Awake’ – captured the No. 1 spot on Billboard‘s Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart.
In addition to writing, recording, and producing furiously during lockdown, Wonderland has created a five-star sanctuary in Animal Crossing that caught the attention of The Washington Post, talked paranormal stuff with Loserfruit on Twitch, performed a series of acclaimed virtual sets, including Digital Mirage, continued producing her globally broadcast radio show, “Radio Wonderland,” plus started a side hustle as a YouTuber with her DJ tutorials. Alison also appears in the documentary UNDERPLAYED, which premiered at The Toronto Film Festival this month. Stacey Lee’s uplifting documentary examines gender inequality in the electronic dance music scene.
