'Number One Fan'

Muna have nailed the art of the sad banger.

The Los Angeles shot to prominence with debut album 'About U', one of 2017's most intriguing pop full lengths.

Finding the balance between pop euphoria and gorgeous melancholia, Muna toyed with the mixture, somehow finding themselves in the middle.

New album 'Saves The World' lands on September 6th, and the group are ready to share a full preview with fans.

'Number One Fan' is the ultimate sad banger, with Muna reflecting on an imaginary conversation with "the negative voices in your head..."

Issac Schneider directs the clip, with Muna's striking image - they could honestly appear in the Bronze Club in Buffy The Vampire Slayer - pinned against their incredible alt-pop.

Muna explain...

"'Number One Fan' is the first release from an album that we truly cannot wait to share with our fans. It is a song about recognising the negative voices in your head and learning to speak back to them. It’s a joyful and surprising experience to recognise that, just as we can all be our own biggest haters, we can also decide to be our own biggest fans."

"We can choose to believe in ourselves, to take notice of all the little admirable things we do, to applaud every inch of progress and comfort ourselves through every pitfall. It’s an incredibly liberating process, learning to love ourselves this way. In this culture, we are almost taught to look to other people to fill up some void in ourselves."

"What happens when we accept that we are already whole? We become our own icons. We become unstoppable and un-buyable. We save the world. No, just kidding, sorry we got caught up in the moment. (But maybe!)"

Tune in now.
