Friday 31st August 2018
Sun In Our Eyes (Don Diablo)
Release date: TBC Label: Chess Club / RCA Victor
Forever Neverland’ is MØ's highly anticipated second album due out on October 19th via Chess Club / RCA Victor. The record is announced with the uplifting new single ‘Sun In Our Eyes’, co-written with Diplo. Having begun her musical kinship with Diplo on her breakout track ‘XXX 88’ in 2013, ‘Sun In Our Eyes’ is an apt introduction to this new era in MØ’s already distinguished career.
Of her new single, MØ says: “Diplo and I are long time collaborators now. One of the many reasons I love working with him is because I always feel like it's a free and creative process and I always like the end product. We both loved ‘Sun In Our Eyes’ from the beginning and what makes it special to me is that It's a combination of the two ingredients I'm always craving in music: uplifting and melancholy vibes. ??“It's the lead single for my new album Forever Neverland and it's about imaginary love and living in a bubble which are also subjects on the album. This song feels like both a coming together of everything Wes and I have done so far but also a new beginning which is fitting with a new album.”
Despite a wealth of collaborations between them, ‘Sun In Our Eyes’ is the sound both of songwriters operating at the height of their powers. Diplo says: “Karen and I have some special chemistry in the studio. Whenever we work together we always write three or four songs in a day, and every time we get better. I think ‘Sun In Our Eyes’ is the best song we’ve ever written together.”
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.
MØ will celebrate the release of Forever Neverland with a huge European tour, beginning in Hamburg on 9 November, culminating in a hometown show at Copenhagen’s Royal Arena.
