Mø, the Danish singer-songwriter and vocal glue that holds Major Lazer’s “Lean On” together, has just released a beautiful new pop confection called “Final Song.” Produced by British powerhouse MNEK (he of Zara Larsson’s “Never Forget You” and Beyoncé’s Lemonade standout “Hold Up”), the tune rides on a chorus anchored by a supremely weird, four-stepping drum machine and a flameout of synthesized xylophonic blips. It is very, very good and a sure sign that Mø’s upcoming sophomore record is going to be the aural equivalent of several flame emojis.
“‘Final Song’ is about reconnecting with your inner strength,” MØ said in a press release. “With your inner glow, passion, spirit animal, whatever – the force that keeps us going and doing what we love. I wrote it with MNEK and Noonie Bao – both of whom I adore – in Los Angeles earlier this year. We all need to feel empowered from within to be the best version of ourself, but it’s not always easy and that’s what inspired me to write these lyrics. When you’re united with your inner glow you can beat the fears and fly towards your dreams.”
