Later that year, MØ, in collaboration with Major Lazer’s Walshy Fire, dropped ‘Walshy Fire Presents: MMMMØ – The Mix’. MØ described the remix album as a “mix of some of my old favourites, new favourites, some B-sides and a recent cover I did of one of my favourite songs in the world!”.
MØ’s last studio album, ‘Forever Neverland’, dropped back in 2018. In a review of the album, NME‘s Nick Levine wrote that it proves “MØ’s own music deserves to find a wider audience.
“By turns anthemic, experimental and boldly poptastic, ‘Forever Neverland’ hits multiple grooves, proving she’s a fascinating, multifaceted musician in her own right. As an artist, she’s much more than someone to lean on.”
