Well, it’s just a surprise release bonanza today, isn’t it? First Fever Ray, now MØ has released a new EP out of nowhere. So that’s two. How many would constitute a bonanza? Let’s just say that’s enough.

MØ announced new EP ‘When I Was Young’, alongside a track of the same name as her new single, last night. The release is her first new collection of songs since 2014 debut album ‘No Mythologies To Follow’.

Speaking about the new EP, MØ says: “Making the EP has been such a nice flashback experience because I forgot about the little things; how you put the songs together, the lyrics, the song titles and the artwork. Just being in the bubble of that energy is so fucking awesome. It’s so amazing to be able to create a universe”.

She goes on: “These years have been a learning process about what’s important, and that’s what this EP reflects. These songs were chosen instinctively, and by a gut feeling really, but they’re all about both looking back and forward”.

Here’s the title track, ‘When I Was Young’:
