MUNA TO RELEASE SOPHOMORE ALBUM SAVES THE WORLD ON SEPTEMBER 6
PRE-ORDER AVAILABLE NOW
FIRST SINGLE NUMBER ONE FAN OUT NOW WITH VIDEO
Toronto, ON – June 7, 2019 – Today, critically acclaimed Los Angeles-based trio, MUNA, have announced their highly anticipated sophomore album, Saves The World, which will be released on September 6th via RCA Records. The album is available for pre-order here.
MUNA is offering their first taste of new music today with the release of their first single, Number One Fan, which was written by MUNA and was co-produced by MUNA and Mike Crossey (1975, Wolf Alice), accompanied by a video directed by Isaac Schneider, which can be watched here.
“Number One Fan is the first release from an album that we truly cannot wait to share with our fans. It is a song about recognizing the negative voices in your head and learning to speak back to them. It’s a joyful and surprising experience to recognize that, just as we can all be our own biggest haters, we can also decide to be our own biggest fans. We can choose to believe in ourselves, to take notice of all the little admirable things we do, to applaud every inch of progress and comfort ourselves through every pitfall. It’s an incredibly liberating process, learning to love ourselves this way. In this culture, we are almost taught to look to other people to fill up some void in ourselves. What happens when we accept that we are already whole? We become our own icons. We become unstoppable and un-buyable. We save the world. No, just kidding, sorry we got caught up in the moment. (But maybe!)” said MUNA.
MUNA released their debut album, About U, in 2017 and since then the album has received mass critical acclaim from the likes of The Los Angeles Times, W Magazine, V Magazine, The FADER, SPIN, and many more. It also made a number of Year End Best Of lists including NPR’s 100 Best Songs of 2017, which stated, “the band created a musical safe space and an anthem for otherness, letting its joy speak as loudly as its defiance,” Billboard’s 50 Best Albums of 2017: Critics Pick, which called the album “spellbinding,” and The Noisey Staff’s Favorite Tracks of the Year, which praised, “the Los Angeles trio has built a sanctuary in which it’s possible for marginalized people to let go”. The trio, made up of Katie Gavin (lead vocals/production), Naomi McPherson (production/guitar/synths/vocals), and Josette Maskin (lead guitar/vocals), have performed on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel Live!. They have headlined their own sold out tour and have previously toured with Miike Snow, Grouplove and most recently Harry Styles to name a few.
