New single "Don't Wanna Dance" is one of the young year's most delectable pop singles.
In 2012, Copenhagen native Karen Marie Ørsted, better know by her stage name MØ (pronounced "moo"), released her first single "Maiden," a soulful track with a title that doubles as a direct translation of her stage name. The alt-pop artist then spent the next 18 months continuing that hot streak, with follow-up tracks "Glass," "Pilgrim," "Waste of Time" and an un-credited feature on Avicii's song "Dear Boy" all impressing in different ways.
After sharing her "Bikini Daze" EP last October, MØ will release her debut full-length, "No Mythologies To Follow," on Mar. 10 through Chess Club/RCA Victor. Recorded in Copenhagen with Ronni Vindahl, the album includes the "XXX 88," produced by Diplo, who Ørsted describes to Billboard as being "relaxed, [and] very down-to-earth and cool… For him, it's all about finding these fresh, new sounds." The song's accompanying music video was filmed in L.A. over a period of two extremely hot days last month, and has earned 876,000 views on YouTube since its release last September.
