Los Angeles trio MUNA were listed as one of the NME 100 new acts for 2017. We described their music at the time as “funky synthpop which packs anthemic choruses aplenty” and said that their “inclusive dancefloor banger ‘I Know A Place’ that cemented their places as one of the most exciting and innovative pop bands in the world right now”.
Announcing the news on Twitter, Styles wrote: “@whereisMUNA will be joining me on tour this year in North America and Europe. Looking forward to it.”
The band added: “We’re very happy to be joining this fine gentleman on tour this fall. much love, harry.”

He said: “People of my age have let themselves go, they’re fat, balding idiots with fading tattoos. They sit in their garage and write shite like ‘Sign of the Times’ for Harry Styles. Which, quite frankly, my cat could have written in about 10 minutes!”
Adding: “I don’t mind the song, my wife was falling over herself, ‘Have you heard Harry Styles’ new song? It’s like Prince’, I was like, ‘Without even hearing it, I can assure you it’s not like Prince!’”
