Release date: TBC Label: RCA
MØ today debuts her massive new single, Final Song, produced by MNEK (Beyonce / Zara Larsson), out now to stream and buy via Chess Club / RCA Victor. MØ, AKA Karen Marie Ørsted, is one of the fastest rising pop stars on the planet. The co-writer and voice of the worldwide smash Major Lazer track Lean On - the most-streamed song ever on Spotify - is currently putting the finishing touches to her eagerly anticipated second album, due for release later this year.
Ørsted grew up on Funen, one of Denmark's largest islands, and wrote her first song when she was seven years old. A pop obsessive as a child, she became involved with politics, punk and the anti-fascism movement in her teens, leading her to form the “noisy, trashy electro-pop punk band” Mor aged 18. But already she was restless and writing new songs on her own, trying out a variety of sounds and styles on her laptop in her bedroom that, in 2009, necessitated her transformation into MØ. In 2014, she released her debut album No Mythologies To Follow - a unique blend of bedroom beats, soul-punk-electro-R&B and pop harmonies - to rave reviews. The record features singles Pilgrim, Waste of Time, Don’t Wanna Dance and XXX 88 feat. Diplo. In the two years since the album was released, MØ has played sold out tours solo and with Major Lazer, and won over festival crowds worldwide.
Final Song comes on the same day that MØ announces a major worldwide tour for the winter, starting in Brussels in October and taking in shows across the UK, Europe and the US throughout November and December. Tickets are available via pre-sale from 18th May with general sale beginning 9am on 20th May. Before then, she plays some of the world’s biggest music festivals this summer.
