Atlantic recording artists Why Don’t We have teamed up with Macklemore on the brand new track, “I Don’t Belong In This Club,” available now at all digital retailers and streaming services. The surprise collaboration arrived overnight and the companion music video – directed by Jason Koenig (Ed Sheeran, Macklemore) – arrives on opening night of the band’s 8 Letters Tour, which kicked off in Phoenix, AZ last March 20.
Known for their prolific, creative output, “I Don’t Belong In This Club” marks the third song and video release from Why Don’t We in 2019. The band kicked off the year with “Big Plans,” which also shot to #1 on the iTunes all genres chart and boasts over 6 million views on YouTube, followed by last month’s of “Cold in LA.”
“I Don’t Belong In This Club” follows Why Don’t We’s latest single “8 Letters” which hit the Top 20 at Pop radio and boasts over 130 million global audio and video streams to date. The group recently performed “8 Letters,” “Big Plans,” and more on the outdoor stage at Jimmy Kimmel Live! in front of one of the loudest audiences the show has seen. Marking the event, Rolling Stone noted “…the crowd’s screams and shrieks of glee nearly overpowered the musicians’ voices” while Billboard simply described the performance as “epic.” The pandemonium mirrored the band’s outdoor concert in Rockefeller Plaza as part of TODAY’s Citi Concert Series, where they garnered one of the largest crowds of the summer.
