Lifted off their debut album, About U, MUNA's anthemic single, "I Know A Place," has become a bit of a queer anthem--appropriate, considering lead vocalist Katie Gavin penned the lyrics in response to Orlando's tragic Pulseshooting. "I know a place we can go, where everyone gonna lay down their weapons," she sings on the chorus, championing safe spaces in a time when LGBTQ safety is at risk.
Today, the track became even more gay, with a remix from MNEK, the queer British singer/songwriter/producer responsible for songs, like Beyonce's "Hold Up" and Little Mix's "Touch." On his major--and I mean major--update, the track shifts from indie-pop to pure pop, packed with glistening dancefloor synths and a heavy, tropical bassline. MNEK even takes on the second verse, singing Gavin's original lyrics with power, "Right now, it's like I'm carrying all the weight of your past."
