Muna have shared a cover of Taylor Swift’s ‘august’.
The band released their excellent new album earlier this year, a self-titled effort packed with revelatory pop daring. Since then, they’ve played some scintillating live shows, and return to London in November for a night at the Roundhouse.
Recently Muna went back into the studio, settling down at a historic audio complex to work anew. Hitting up New York’s Electric Lady Studios, Muna re-visited some material from their recent album, alongside a couple of brand new endeavours.
Slipping into a slinky cover of perennial R&B ear-worm ‘Silk Chiffon’, Muna have also shared their beautifully frank, heart-on-sleeve take on Taylor Swift’s ‘august’.
“The whole environment at Electric Lady Studios is so supportive and open, it often leads to making new creative choices while you’re in the midst of recording. ‘August’ took on this very breathy, quiet quality that we hadn’t anticipated, but we just went with.”
Tune in now.
