MUNA Announces New Album “MUNA”, Shares New Song “Anything But Me”
- Los Angeles-based electronic pop band MUNA, consisting of Katie Gavin, Josette Maskin and Naomi McPherson, announced their self-titled album would be released on June 24, 2022.
It is their first album in three years since 2019 album “Saves the World”. The album comprises 11-track, featuring guest appearance from Phoebe Bridgers.
Along with the announcement, the band unveiled a new song “Anything But Me” on March 15, 2022.
It was written and produced by Katie Gavin, Josette Maskin and Naomi McPherson.
MUNA said of the song in a press release, “Breaking up is hard to do. In the past we've stayed in relationships for a long time, waiting until we hit low lows to admit it was over. '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 accompanying music video was directed by Ally Pankiw. The band continued, “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?”
