Four years have passed since MØ has released a full-length album, with her debut studio landing at No. 11 on Billboard‘s chart of “breaking and entering” albums to the US. That was in 2014, and now the Danish pop star is soon to release her sophomore studio album, Forever Neverland.
So what better way to tease fans than a Peter Pan-themed music video. The ocean-themed video accompanies her latest single, “Sun In Our Eyes,” with a long-time favorite collaborator of hers — none other than Diplo.
Directed by David Helman, the 4-minute video follows a group of young, carefree spirits as they cut loose with societal ties to sail the high seas and create their own universe. The inspiration for Karen Marie Ørsted came from Peter Pan and the lost boys.
“‘Sun In Our Eyes’ is a love song. It circles the subject of being unwilling to accept the truth. You wanna keep riding the high even though you deep down know it might be wrong and that it’s all a self-made illusion. This theme is what the video is inspired by and it is also one of the subjects my forthcoming album Forever Neverland is dealing with,” says MØ to Billboard of the single.
Forever Neverland arrives October 19, marking MØ’s first full album release since her debut album, No Mythologies To Follow.
