MØ releases surprise EP and new single ‘When I Was Young’

It's her first multi-track release in three years

Danish singer has released a surprise EP, ‘When I Was Young’.

Earlier this evening, MØ, real name Karen Marie Ørsted, debuted her new single of the same name on Beats 1.


The new track has been teased on social media over the past few days with cover art featuring Ørsted holding a red rose against a dreamy millennial pink and cream backdrop.

Now she has followed up the release with a full EP of six tracks.

In a press release, MØ said, “Making the EP has been such a nice flashback experience because I forgot about the little things; how you put the songs together, the lyrics, the song titles and the artwork,” she explains. “Just being in the bubble of that energy is so fucking awesome. It’s so amazing to be able to create a universe.”

‘When I Was Young’ is MØ’s first multi-track release for the last three years, since her debut album ‘No Mythologies To Follow’ came out in 2014.

The past few years have been collaboration heavy for the musician, who has worked with with Iggy Azalea, Elliphant, Charli XCX, and Justin Bieber.

Her track with Major Lazer and DJ Snake, ‘Lean On, has been viewed 2.2 billion times on YouTube.

Back in March, MØ shared the Live Lounge with British duo Snakehips to cover Childish Gambino.
