MØ Need yet an­other rea­son to won­der why the hell any­one both­ers mak­ing full-length al­bums in 2018? Con­sider the cu­ri­ous case of MØ. When the Straight in­ter­viewed the Dan­ish elec­tro-pop al­chemist known as Karen Marie Aa­gaard Ørsted An­der­sen back in 2014, she was work­ing on her first LP, No Mytholo­gies to Fol­low.

Flash for­ward four years, and there’s been no sec­ond al­bum, de­spite re­peated prom­ises that it’s im­mi­nent. In­stead, MØ has rolled out sin­gles like 2015’s Di­plo­pro­duced “Kamikaze”. Rather than buckle down, she’s been busy col­lab­o­rat­ing with the likes of Ma­jor Lazer and Justin Bieber, their joint ven­ture “Cold Water” go­ing Top 10 on charts all over the world, in­clud­ing Amer­ica. The last time we heard from MØ as a solo artist was with 2016’s “Fi­nal Song”, which cracked the Top 40 in 10 coun­tries. De­spite hav­ing noth­ing new to push, the Dan­ish singer—who last played For­tune Sound Club in Van­cou­ver—jumps to the Vogue this Sun­day (Fe­bru­ary 11). Who needs al­bums, any­ways?
