MØ, AKA Karen Marie Ørsted, is one of the fastest rising pop stars on the planet. The co-writer and voice of the worldwide smash Major Lazer track Lean On – the most-streamed song ever on Spotify – is currently putting the finishing touches to her eagerly anticipated second album, due for release later this year.

Ørsted grew up on Funen, one of Denmark’s largest islands, and wrote her first song when she was seven years old. A pop obsessive as a child, Ørsted became involved with politics, punk and the anti-fascism movement in her teens, leading her to form the “noisy, trashy electro-pop punk band” Mor aged 18. In 2009, after restlessly writing new songs on her own and trying out a variety of sounds and styles on her laptop she necessitated her transformation into MØ. In 2014, she released her debut album No Mythologies To Follow – a unique blend of bedroom beats, soul-punk-electro-R&B and pop harmonies – to rave reviews. The record features singles Pilgrim, Waste of Time, Don’t Wanna Dance and XXX 88 feat. Diplo.
