MUNA have announced they will return with their anticipated self-titled third album later this year.
The latest record from the Los Angeles follows on from 2019’s ‘Saves The World’ and has been teased with ‘Anything But Me’, the first track to arrive from the new release.
MUNA said of the track, which comes alongside a video from director Ally Pankiw: “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 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 realise 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?”
MUNA’s Josette Maskin added: “What ultimately keeps us together is knowing that someone’s going to hear each one of these songs and use it to make a change they need in their life. That people are going to feel a kind of catharsis, even if it’s a catharsis that I might never have known myself, because I’m fucked up.”
