Måneskin continue upward momentum on sparkling new single Supermodel

Rock's hottest property, Italian glam rockers Måneskin, have released a new single, Supermodel. The song was produced by uber-producer Max Martin, who's worked in the past with everyone from Britney Spears to Taylor Swift, The Weeknd, Coldplay and Lady Gaga.

"We wrote Supermodel after spending the best few months in LA," say the band. "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."

Perhaps appropriately for a song inspired by Los Angeles, Supermodel opens with a guitar part that sounds like Red Hot Chili Peppers man John Frusciante at his melodic, mournful best, before singer Damiano takes over on the song rips skywards.

 

In March Måneskin announced a world tour that kicks off in October and stretches through until May 23. The announcement came after a run of delays and postponements. 

“The Loud Kids Get Louder tour will actually see our very first headline tour in North America," said the band. "All rescheduled European indoor dates have been upgraded due to demand and we’ve added some new ones for all of you who missed the chance to get their tickets.

“Also we really want to thank you for being so understanding during this long period as we got this in place. We know you’ve been waiting patiently for this announcement, and we feel very grateful towards all our beloved fans for your love, support and understanding. We missed you and we missed performing, and we can not wait to play for you all again!”
