Ahead of the release of her eagerly anticipated second album Forever Neverland, MØ has dropped the new track ‘Blur’. Blending MØ’s patented pop hooks with a grunge inspired guitar refrain, ‘Blur’ is an infectious and off-kilter new cut, showing another side to the forthcoming album. A defining track from the album ‘Blur’ is an introspective and personal song with a playful approach to songwriting and production that is characteristically MØ.
"I wrote the song in a session in Stockholm in the very end of 2016”, MØ says of ‘Blur’. “I remember being all worn out - exhausted and jet lagged from months of traveling back and forth continents, touring in Europe and writing in Los Angeles. I thought to myself: "There's NO WAY anything good is gonna come out of me today", but as we started writing the song it almost felt therapeutic - like the words were pushing to come out. 'Blur' is about feeling lost, and on a personal level I would be lying if I didn't mention that this song, for me, was about feeling creatively and artistically lost in the city of all great opportunities, Los Angeles."
Executive produced Stint, Forever Neverland is an extremely important body of work for MØ. With themes of escapism and eternal youth, the record is a document on where MØ sees her place in the world right now.
MØ has already previewed the record with the reflective ‘Sun In Our Eyes’ in collaboration with Diplo, the escapist anthem ‘Way Down’ and the Illangelo produced banger ‘Imaginary Friend’. Forever Neverland also include contributions from ice-cool US singer Empress Of (‘Red Wine’), a new collaboration with future-pop polymath Charli XCX (‘If It’s Over’), having previously worked together on Charli XCX’s mixtapes Number 1 Angel and Pop 2, as well as production from the likes of Stargate, Hudson Mohawke and more.
As the writer and voice behind some of the most iconic songs in recent years, Danish star MØ has forged a unique home in modern pop since the release of her debut album No Mythologies To Follow in 2014. In the years since, MØ has become a mainstay on radio playlists and streaming charts, lending her versatile yet distinctive vocals to tracks alongside some of music’s current leading lights, while also releasing her own hit singles. Late last year she released her When I Was Young EP, following a three-year run of hit singles, which included ‘Lean On’, a collaboration with Major Lazer which is one of the most streamed tracks of all time, and songs with Justin Bieber, Charli XCX and Snakehips, to name but a few. In 2018 so far MØ has released tracks with Diplo (‘Get It Right’), Jack Antonoff (‘Never Fall In Love’), ALMA (‘Dance For Me’), Noah Cyrus (‘We Are F**ked’), Steel Banglez + Yxng Bane (Your Lovin’), as well as being part of Dua Lipa’s BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge super group performance of ‘IDGAF’ alongside Charli XCX, Zara Larsson and ALMA.
