Everyone’s favorite electro-pop trio Muna have announced their self-titled new album. The project will be released via Phoebe Bridgers’ label, Saddest Factory Records, and include the group’s Bridgers-featuring single, “Silk Chiffon.”
Muna has recently been playing tour dates with none other than Kacey Musgraves to support her album Star-Crossed. MUNA marks the band’s third studio album, following 2017’s About U and 2019’s Save The World, both via RCA. Here’s everything we know about the new Muna album so far:
Does MUNA have a release date?
MUNA will be released on June 24, 2022.
What MUNA singles are already out?
In addition to the Bridgers-assisted “Silk Chiffon,” Muna also released the single “Anything But Me,” along with the accompanying video, on Tuesday, March 15th.
“In the past we’ve stayed in relationships for a long time, waiting until we hit low lows to admit it was over,” the band said in a statement. “‘Anything But Me’ is a song about leaving a partnership simply because it doesn’t feel right. It’s about trusting yourself and your instincts enough to walk away from someone while you still have love for each other and before it gets too bad.
The video for the song plays with the idea that we’ve been our own captors in relationships, keeping ourselves in unhealthy dynamics, maybe because that’s what feels familiar. The song embodies the lightness and a playfulness that floods in when you realize that there’s no lock on the door, no one’s holding you back - you can untie the knot and skip into the sunset whenever you’re ready. Now, who can guess what attachment style I have?”
