LA-based trio MUNA have shared a new video titled “Anything But Me”, a perfect breakup anthem to untie and burn the knot. The track is from their upcoming self-titled album, which will be out on June 24th via Saddest Factory Records. If you’re looking for a self-empowering track that lets you love yourself a bit more, then this is exactly what you need. 

“Breaking up is hard to do. In the past we’ve stayed in relationships for a long time, waiting until we hit low lows to admit it was over. ‘Anything But Me’ is a song about leaving a partnership simply because it doesn’t feel right. It’s about trusting yourself and your instincts enough to walk away from someone while you still have love for each other and before it gets too bad. The video for the song plays with the idea that we’ve been our own captors in relationships, keeping ourselves in unhealthy dynamics, maybe because that’s what feels familiar. The song embodies the lightness and a playfulness that floods in when you realize that there’s no lock on the door, no one’s holding you back – you can untie the knot and skip into the sunset whenever you’re ready. Now, who can guess what attachment style I have?”

MUNA is currently at SXSW and will be hitting the road in May.
