MORE NEW MUSIC FORTHCOMING
Danish superstar MØ shares a new song, “True Romance,” today alongside a video—listen here and watch here. The new track is a fan favourite which MØ has been performing live for years. She recently reimagined and recorded it with bandmate Rasmus Littauer, and today it sees its first official release. More music from MØ is imminent.
“‘True Romance’ was a song that I first started writing back in 2015,” says MØ. “I got too busy during that time so the song never came together, but I’m grateful that some of my sweet fans wouldn’t let it go because I’m so happy with the final version. This song is about finding your way back to some kind of innocence and not allowing life to make you too jaded. Trying to find joy amidst the chaos. That feels very timely.”
Motordrome, released earlier this year, was MØ’s first body of work since 2018’s much lauded Forever Neverland. Her career was almost instantly launched into the stratosphere from the very start with her monumental 2014 debut album No Mythologies To Follow and a very prominent feature on Major Lazer’s “Lean On”—one of the most successful singles of all time—soon after. When touring behind Forever Neverland came to a halt in 2019, MØ, born Karen Marie Aagaard Ørsted Andersen, found herself completely burned out after five years on the road. Making Motordrome proved to be MØ’s escape from a deepening spiral—what resulted was a collection of songs that bridged the gap between her years as a teen punk touring anarchist squats across Europe and the bright scandipop she’d come to be known for.
