MØ has released a cover of Smashing Pumpkins’ hit track, “Bullet With Butterfly Wings.”
The Danish pop artist has teamed up with Major Lazer’s Walshy Fire to release a set of MØ mixes called Walshy Fire Presents: MMMMØ – The Mix, which drops on November 1st. Today, we’ve received an unreleased track, “On & On,” and the gritty, raucous cover. MØ’s rendition of “Bullet With Butterfly Wings” sees the artist adding her own raspy twist to the renowned, paranoid lyrics, wailing “Still just a rat in a cage.”
“I’ve known Walshy Fire since 2014 when I originally started collaborating with Major Lazer so it’s been really fun working with him on this project,” MØ explains in a statement. “To make the mix special we added a few of my unreleased tracks, including an old song from one of the earlier Forever Neverland sessions, and a recent cover of one of my all time favourite songs by the Smashing Pumpkins.”
