OhBoy!’s forthcoming single Hey Princess will be the band’s first to be released on both sides of the Atlantic after they teamed up with US based Canvasback Music.

The alternative five piece from Northampton signed with Alcopop! Records earlier this year and now Canvasback Music, a subsidiary of US music giant Atlantic Records, has added OhBoy! to its release roster.

The single, which is out on November 18, will be released by the label which is also home the likes of Frightened Rabbit and Alt-J.

Guitarist Meg Amirghiasvand said: “I think America is the ‘dream’ for any band so we feel really lucky to have this opportunity, particularly with a label that’s part of Atlantic Records.

“It’s been a busy summer and we’ve all worked really hard, so it’s nice to have this as a reward for all of that.

“Going over to the States for gigs depends on how well the singles are received, really. I’d love to do it, The response to this news has been so nice, everyone seems really pleased for us and we’re hoping we can do them all proud.”
