MUNA release ‘Live At Electric Lady EP’ featuring cover of Taylor Swift’s ‘august’

"'August' took on this very breathy, quiet quality that we hadn’t anticipated, but we just went with"

MUNA have released a new live EP exclusive to Spotify.

The five-track EP features live renditions of several tracks from their self-titled album, including ‘Silk Chiffon’ and ‘Anything But Me’, as well as a cover of Taylor Swift’s 2020 hit ‘august’.

“The whole environment at Electric Lady Studios is so supportive and open,” the band said in a press release. “It often leads to making new creative choices while you’re in the midst of recording. ‘August’ took on this very breathy, quiet quality that we hadn’t anticipated, but we just went with.”

In a four-star review of the album, which came out in June, NME wrote: “By now, it should be clear that this lot know how to pen a whopper of a pop anthem – that remains apparent here – but more crucially ‘MUNA’ also serves as solid evidence of a band with many more chapters of evolution up their sleeves yet.”
