MUNA Share New Track 'Home By Now' From Forthcoming Self-Titled Album

Los Angeles-based trio MUNA are back in the US after a buzz filled trip to the UK which included very sold out performances at The Garage and Rough Trade East as well as a packed performance at The Great Escape, living up the hype with their energetic and mesmerizing live show. Now with less than a month before their highly anticipated and career defining self-titled album is out into the world, MUNA are giving us another reason to be excited.

MUNA's Katie Gavin spoke of the new song "Home By Now", saying, "Home By Now is the song on the record that we feel might be closest to our first album in that it's a dance song with brutal lyrics and an emo bridge. It's a breakup song that's a bit more full of longing and doubt than Anything But Me. While a lot of this album does seem to be about trusting my instincts, this song acknowledges the pain of not knowing if I left a relationship that I was meant to be in."

Previous singles like "Silk Chiffon" and "Anything But Me" have fans ready for the next new, exciting chapter but it was "Kind Of Girl," released last month, that well and truly signaled MUNA had arrived. The song received rave reviews for it's raw, emotional honesty and leaves no doubt, MUNA is the band's masterpiece.

The band, comprised of Katie Gavin (she/they), Naomi McPherson (they/them), and Josette Maskin (she/they) will set out on a massive North American tour this summer and will also open for Phoebe Bridgers in NYC for shows at Prospect Park Bandshell in Brooklyn on June 14 & 15 and Forest Hills Stadium in Queens on June 16. MUNA has also announced a run of UK dates this November, see below for a full rundown.
