How To Find True Love And Happiness 2018

Provoke! Online

Hyukoh released the album titled 24: How to Find True Love and Happiness in 2018. How to Find True Love and Happiness comes a year after their hit studio album 23. For this album, Hyukoh had switched things up. Aside from one track, this album was completely in English. The band tried to express the meaning of the songs in a different way. Whilst in the past releases they had created a sort of harmony where the instrumentation and lyrics have been able to coexist and shine by themselves, in this album, the ambiance of the songs is mostly created by the meaning of the words.

In the same year, the band also announced a headlining world tour with over 17 stops across America.
