When I Was Young is the second EP by Danish recording artist MØ, released on 26 October 2017 by Sony Music.
It’s her first body of work since 2014’s No Mythologies To Follow and is something of a throwback to the loose, alternative DIY-pop of her early songs. “Making the EP has been such a nice flashback experience because I forgot about the little things; how you put the songs together, the lyrics, the song titles and the artwork,” the Danish diva explains in the press release. “Just being in the bubble of that energy is so fucking awesome.”
“It’s so amazing to be able to create a universe,” she continues. “These years have been a learning process about what’s important, and that’s what this EP reflects. These songs were chosen instinctively, and by a gut feeling really, but they’re all about both looking back and forward.” The EP comes after a string of bops (“Final Song,” “Kamikaze” and “Nights With You”) intended to launch MØ as a mainstream hitmaker. And it worked, but it looks like she has something else in mind.
