Zoe Wees has released her upbeat new single, “Third Wheel” today. The relatable track’s energetic tone contrasts with the vulnerable lyrical content, which explores the heartbreak of loving someone who’s still obsessed with their ex. Listen to it now below.
The official video for “Third Wheel,” which was directed by Gabriella Kingsley (Fireboy DML x Ed Sheeran, ArrDee x Aitch), scales the song’s musical highs and plumbs its emotional depths as the singer is taken from a sunflower-packed room to a darkened bedroom to an exuberant performance with vibrantly-clad dancers.
Speaking about the song, Zoe Wees said, “It’s so awkwardly heartbreaking to be the third wheel in any relationship. Although this song’s meaning comes from a really tough moment in my own life, I hope this song will make some people reminisce about their own similar experiences as times when they learned to grow.”
Zoe Wees is set to headline New York City’s Mercury Lounge on August 3 and The Hotel Cafe in Hollywood, CA on August 5. While in the States, she’ll also perform at Lollapalooza in Chicago and Outside Lands in San Francisco. See below for itinerary. She will be supporting Coldplay at the band’s sold-out Berlin Olympic Stadium shows on July 10 and 12.
