MUNA Premieres New Song “One That Got Away” on BBC Radio 1
American alt-pop band MUNA, consisting of Katie Gavin, Josette Maskin and Naomi McPherson, premiered a new song “One That Got Away” on BBC Radio 1's Future Sounds with Clara Amfo.
The song is their first music since the 2022 self-titled third studio album.
It was written by Josette Maskin, Katie Gavin and Naomi McPherson. The accompanying music video was directed by Ally Pankiw and Taylor James.
“This song is just rubbing your hot ass in the face of someone who messed up their chance of being with you,” Katie Gavin said of the song in a statement. “It's a bit vengeful and mean, but also fun. Fuck it.”
She continued, “Once I sent Naomi and Jo the demo they really took the cockiness in the lyric and vocal performance and carried it to the extreme with the production of the track. It became this super bombastic, Janet Jackson-era track.”
She said of the video, “[They] came up with the idea of putting the music video in a criminal underworld, which we thought fit perfectly. Plus we wanted an excuse to dress Jo up like The Bear.”
- The band told Clara Amfo, “I mean, I think, I don't know. I'm biased. This is more. This is one of my favorites, if not my absolute favorite song we've ever made. And it's got a fat pocket. So I'm here for that. I'm glad you feel it.”
They continued, “We thank God to be honest, because this was the first song that we tried to do post record and that can always be a challenge. But this song came to us and it wasn't a struggle. It was a thank God moment. So I'm still thinking God we did it.”
