Muna share their latest tease from upcoming third album with new single “Home By Now”

Los Angeles trio Muna is back with a new single in the form of “Home By Now,” the latest taste from the band’s upcoming self-titled album. Powered by an anthemic streak of electronica the song carefully balances the band’s sullen lyrics with a dance-ready vibrance. Muna is no stranger to creating ardent odes filled with stunning catharsis, “Home By Now” continues that trend with whirlwind vibrance. The song also recalls some of the more explicit power pop energies of their first album About U.

“Home By Now” is also accompanied by a visualizer and lyric video. “Would we have turned a corner if I had waited / Do I need to lower my expectations,” Katie Gavin muses, as the video sends a scatterbrain of images across the screen. Between the crash of their potent dance hooks and their ability to transform even heartbreak into something powerful, “Home By Now” is a torrent of pained what ifs that surge incessantly.


With the release of “Home By Now,” Muna has shared four songs total from their upcoming third album Muna. Singles “Silk Chiffon” (feat. Phoebe Bridgers) and “Anything But Me” revel in the band’s exceptional knack for creating shimmering electro-pop anthems. Stay tuned for the release of Muna which comes June 24 via Saddest Factory Records.

“‘Home By Now’ is the song on the record that we feel might be closest to our first album in that it’s a dance song with brutal lyrics and an emo bridge. It’s a breakup song that’s a bit more full of longing and doubt than ‘Anything But Me.’ While a lot of this album does seem to be about trusting my instincts, this song acknowledges the pain of not knowing if I left a relationship that I was meant to be in.”
