MÅNESKIN Explains Inspiration For 'Supermodel' Single
May 14, 2022
Fast-rising global rock stars MÅNESKIN have returned with their new single "Supermodel", written in Los Angeles and produced by acclaimed producer Max Martin (The Weeknd, COLDPLAY, Lady Gaga) and his team.
With its Californian sound and infectious modern rock grooves, "Supermodel" is a sublime new offering from the skyrocketing act who continue to carve out their own inimitable brand of rock and roll. MÅNESKIN came up with the concept of "Supermodel" after being inspired by the many characters they met during their time in L.A.
The band explained: "We wrote 'Supermodel' after spending the best few months in L.A. At times we were surprised yet intrigued to find how people cared so much about the idea of 'celebrity' and status, obsessing over their looks and connections. We started to imagine an enigmatic Supermodel character. She is really cool, fun and social, yet in reality she is troubled, hiding sadness and addiction. In a way you love her, because she knows how to have a good time, but you also want to avoid her, because she might get you into trouble."
MÅNESKIN will be marking the release with the debut live performance of the single at the Eurovision Song Contest final on May 14, celebrating a year since their triumphant win which helped catapult them to no.1 in the global charts.
Following widespread critical praise for their recent performances at Coachella, including being declared as "The Breakout Artist" of the entire festival, MÅNESKIN will kick off their extensive "Loud Kids Tour" on October 31 with a sold-out gig in Seattle and will visit other already other sold out cities including New York, San Francisco, Atlanta and Washington, as well as a newly added date in Los Angeles before embarking on their sold-out European leg in 2023 — playing iconic venues including London's O2 Arena, Accor Arena in Paris and Berlin's Mercedes Benz Arena.
With a sound that's at once classic and thoroughly modern, MÅNESKIN is bringing rock and roll back on top of the international charts, perfectly mixing it with contemporary tastes.
