American pop trio MUNA have collaborated with Phoebe Bridgers for their new single and it’s unbelievably queer.
Our favourite Los Angeles band have long teased their return, and they’re finally back! The electro-pop three-piece announced their first single, Silk Chiffon, with an elusive social media post on Twitter.
The post, shared on 2 September, included a But I’m A Cheerleader styled image with lead singer Katie Gavin dressed as a cheerleader and holding a suitcase.
Eagle-eyed fans spotted Phoebe Bridgers in the background of the shot donning an all-pink blazer, another reference to the 90s classic film.
MUNA released a short trailer for the new single on YouTube which reveals the new track will also include Phoebe Bridgers.
The band released an accompanying clip of the official video on Twitter which further leaned into the But I’m A Cheerleader angle, showing a male character – wearing a “straight is great” t-shirt – delivering a conversation therapy presentation on “straight behaviour”.

After winning over critics and a legion of fans with self-produced debut album About U, MUNA have made a name for themselves as unstoppable dance-pop pioneers.
The LA-based act released their sophomore record, Saves The World, in 2018. Since then, the hit band have been teasing a third album which is expected to release this year.
“Phoebe asked us to be in a four person couple with her. We said, ‘Sadly, we are all taken but we will happily sign to your record label for the small fee of 10 million dollars,” the band said in a statement.
“After much negotiation, she obliged,” they continued. “We look forward to this lifelong partnership and Phoebe raising our first-born children, as was included in the contract,” they joked.
MUNA will be supporting Phoebe Bridgers on her will North American Reunion tour this September.
