“’How Do You Love Somebody’ is a new and fresh song for us. Every song we make, we feel one step closer to defining the question “who is Why Don’t We?” and I don’t think the band has ever been so unanimous that a song defines who we are as ‘How Do You Love Somebody’ does. This song is filled with electric energy and even more electric guitars. It’s an anthem for all who have had a past lover that moved on too quickly, which all 5 of us can, unfortunately, relate to. We had so much fun making ‘How Do You Love Somebody’ and we hope you enjoy it as much we do!” – WHY DON’T WE
Since their debut in 2016, Why Don’t We has amassed over 4 billion global career streams, over 950 million YouTube views, 7 million Instagram followers, two RIAA Platinum-certified singles, five RIAA Gold-certified singles, three Top 20 singles at Pop radio, and two Top 10 albums on the Billboard 200 chart. Taking an innovative and unconventional approach towards releasing new music and actively engaging their rapidly growing fanbase, the band put out their first five EPs within their first year together and followed shortly after with their inaugural full-length 8 Letters album in 2018. Soon after, 2019 saw the release of new singles monthly, including standouts “Big Plans,” “I Don’t Belong In This Club” featuring Macklemore, & the Ed Sheeran-penned/Steve Mac-produced hit “What Am I.”
The Los Angeles quintet—Daniel Seavey, Corbyn Besson, Jonah Marais, Jack Avery, and Zach Herron— went back to basics for their sophomore album, flatlining all social media and picking up their instruments to personally write, record, and produce the music themselves. Led by the band’s inaugural Billboard Hot 100 charting single “Fallin’ (Adrenaline),” The Good Times and The Bad Ones earned their highest debut on the Billboard 200 at #3 and their first #1 album on the album sales chart.
Why Don’t We re-emerged with their triumphant single “Love Back” in late 2021, sounding refreshed as ever after a turbulent year and marking the beginning an exciting new era. The band also teamed up with multi-Platinum producer Jonas Blue for their smash collaboration “Don’t Wake Me Up,” further cementing their newly found creative solace and control.
The band has sold out back-to-back North American and global headline tours, in addition to performing on historic stages such as Radio City Music Hall (selling out the venue in under two hours) and Madison Square Garden (as part of the iHeartRadio Jingle Ball Tour). Furthermore, Why Don’t We took home the award for “Choice Music Group” at the 2019 Teen Choice Awards, received a nomination for “Best Group” at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards, and has made high profile national television appearances on NBC’s TODAY Show (including back-to-back summer concerts in Rockefeller Plaza), ABC’s Good Morning America, nationally syndicated Live with Kelly and Ryan, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, NBC’s The Kelly Clarkson Show, CBS’s The Late Late Show with James Corden, ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live! and more.
