MUNA dream of a lost future in “Home By Now”
MUNA have released a new single, "Home By Now" alongside a visualizer. The track arrives ahead of the band's forthcoming self-titled album.
MUNA is set to drop June 24 via Saddest Factory Records.
"Home By Now"'s light vocals and hypnotic synths belie the weighty doubt contained in its lyrics. When decisions seem final, it's always hard not to look back and ask "what if?" MUNA's Katie Gavin finds herself in such a position on this track as she imagines a future with a past partner.
Gavin commented on the song in a press release.
"'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," Gavin says. "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."
MUNA are heading on their summer North American tour in June. Grab your tickets here and look below for a full list of tour dates.
