MØ Releases Bittersweet Dance Anthem 'Blur': Listen

Fryd Frydendahl

added to the buzz surrounding her much anticipated album Forever Neverland with the release of her new track “Blur” on Monday (Oct. 15).

“Blur” features a catchy chorus of MØ’s distorted vocals, followed by a rhythmic beat drop, the backbone of exactly the kind of electro-pop dance hit MØ is known for. In the song, MØ sings of a life where she has taken the backseat, fighting to regain control and break out of her trapped routine. “Let me out, I’m trapped in a blur,” she sings. “Started out the way I wanted but it’s weird now.”

For MØ, writing “Blur” was a way to find solace after months of traveling between continents while on tour. “‘Blur’ is about feeling lost, and on a personal level I would be lying if I didn't mention that this song, for me, was about feeling creatively and artistically lost in the city of all great opportunities, Los Angeles,” MØ said in a release.

After years of teasing and tiding fans over with collaborations and surprise EPs, MØ finally announced the release of her sophomore album, Forever Neverland, a follow-up to 2014’s No Mythologies to Follow.

Since her album debut, the 30-year-old Danish singer has collaborated with artists like Justin Bieber and DJ Snake on the chart-topping single “Cold Water,” but now it’s time for MØ to once again flex her solo chops with this long-awaited comeback.

MØ has already released a handful of songs from the 14-track album, including “Way Down” and her Diplo collaboration “Sun in Our Eyes.” Forever Neverland features guest appearances from artists like Charli XCX, Empress Of and Two Feet. 

Forever Neverland will be released Friday via Columbia Records and is available for pre-order here.
