After debuting the song live at Coachella over the weekend, MUNA has officially released “One That Got Away.” The boppy indie track marks the band’s first release in nearly a year, following June 2022’s self-titled album.
An accompanying visual directed by Ally Pankiw and Taylor James pits the band in the mob-like underworld of hidden crime. MUNA’s Katie Gavin, Josette Maskin, and Naomi McPherson star in the video alongside actress Caitlin Stasey.
“This song is just rubbing your hot ass in the face of someone who messed up their chance of being with you,” Gavin said of the single. “It’s a bit vengeful and mean, but also fun. F*ck it.”
“Once I sent Naomi and Jo the demo they really took the cockiness in the lyric and vocal performance and carried it to the extreme with the production of the track. It became this super bombastic, Janet Jackson–era track. Ally Pankiw, who directed the music video with Taylor James, then came up with the idea of putting the music video in a criminal underworld, which we thought fit perfectly. Plus we wanted an excuse to dress Jo up like the Bear.”
