About this deal

Muna is working the source code of pop that pulls at your heartstrings; the album is full of longing and revelation and hard-won freedom. What other band could have stamped the forsaken year of 2021 with spangles and pom-poms - made you sing (and maybe even believe) that "Life's so fun, life's so fun," during what may well have been the most uneasy stretch of your life?

Where debut ‘About U’ fostered their dark-pop label, MUNA have expanded their horizons on follow-up ‘Saves The World’.Lead single and unabashed dancefloor banger ‘Number One Fan’ itself is a reaction to their post-tour comedown, stepping from universal adoration to isolation and finding a way to celebrate the self.

McPherson added, "I hope this album helps people connect to each other the way that we, in Muna, have learned to connect to each other. Having switched camps from a major label to Phoebe Bridgers' Saddest Factory and with a new self-titled LP in tow, MUNA are releasing their most confident outpouring to date.The trio, made up of Katie Gavin (lead vocals/production), Naomi McPherson (production/guitar/synths/vocals), and Josette Maskin (lead guitar/vocals). Like many indie minded artists, the idea of physical media isn’t something millennials embrace unless there’s an eco friendly version of their product that’s released during a limited time at the first start of the release. The synth on "What I Want" scintillates like a Robyn dance-floor anthem; "Anything But Me," galloping in 12/8, gives off Shania Twain in eighties neon; "Kind of Girl," with it's soaring, plaintive The Chicks chorus, begs to be sung at max volume with your best friends. Since the beginning of their career, Muna has embraced pain as a bedrock of longing, a center of radical truth, a part of growing up, and an inherent factor of marginalized experience - the band's members belong to queer and minority communities, and play for these fellow-travelers above all. 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 f***ed up.

Muna, the band’s self-titled third album, is a landmark — the forceful, deliberate, dimensional output of a band who has nothing to prove to anyone except themselves. What ultimately keeps us together," Maskin said, "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. In the edit page, go to the 'Metadata' tab and add your Juno artist, label or release page for listeners to purchase your release / releases.If About U was the tender love child of the Cocteau Twins and Depeche Mode; Saves the World is an unpredictable teenager getting into '90s rom-com soundtracks and self-help podcasts. So, unless you’re smart enough to get the release at the start, directly from the artist, you’re pretty much screwed when you don’t follow the artist and purchase directly from them for special product like these amazing vinyl releases. The band's period of uncertainty and open questioning burned everything away, leaving a feat of an album - the forceful, deliberate, dimensional output of a band who has nothing to prove to anyone except themselves.
