MUNA are the latest artists to take part in the Spotify Singles series, where they recorded a cover of Normani’s “Motivation” alongside an acoustic rendition of their own track, “Stayaway.”
The indie pop trio’s rendition of “Motivation” takes the catchy pop banger and turns it into a silky, emotive tune. Revolving around a gritty guitar line, dreamy synths, and processed vocals, this dream pop track is a perfect compliment to Normani’s original hit. Their acoustic rendition of “Stayaway” sees the cyclical track turned into a painstaking breakup anthem, as frontwoman Katie Gavin sings lines like, “If I put on music then I’ll play your song/ If I play your song then I think I’ll lose it/ End up pulled up at the front of your lawn.”
