Much loved and critically acclaimed Los Angeles-based trio MUNA recently announced their signing to Phoebe Bridgers’ label Saddest Factory Records and today are releasing their first new music in over a year. The undeniable new track “Silk Chiffon” is one of the band’s poppier releases and is “a song for kids to have their first gay kiss to,” according to producer and guitarist Naomi McPherson.
It has a special guest feature by Phoebe who also appears in the destined to be iconic video. The video was directed by Ally Pankiw and inspired by the film But I’m A Cheerleader to honor the cult movie that was there for them as kids. Their hope is that queer kids will watch this video, then watch the movie and feel the same. “I think it’s really important for queer people to be our own archivists, and point to these other references that span generations,” Katie Gavin from the band tells us.
MUNA will soon be heading out on a North American tour supporting Phoebe Bridgers, kicking off September 8th. The band have also just announced they will be supporting Kacey Murgraves on her 2022 tour, all dates can be found below.

Liberty moved from Dallas to California to attend Septien Entertainment Group, a boot camp whose alumni include Demi Lovato, Selena Gomez and Kacey Musgraves.
