With just a week remaining until the release of their explosive new sophomore album, How Does It Feel, music duo MS MR (Lizzy Plapinger and Max Hershenow) have unveiled their brand new single, “Criminals.” First shared by Zane Lowe on Apple’s Beats 1 World Record this week, listen to the shimmering and energetic pop anthem below now. How Does It Feel, which will be released July 17 via Columbia Records, is available to pre-order today exclusively at iTunes. You can also hear several other new songs from the upcoming record via Apple Music only. See the album cover art and tracklisting here.
To celebrate the album’s release, MS MR will make a huge splash in Chicago during Lollapalooza weekend later this month. Starting Wednesday, July 29, the band, in partnership with Airbnb, will perform a private in-home concert for one lucky Airbnb host and 20 guests. That same night, Lizzy and Max will also DJ Vevo’s LIFT Live concert at The Vic Theatre; MS MR is currently featured as Vevo’s LIFT artist for the month of July. On Thursday, July 30, MS MR is joined by Columbia labelmates Wet for a sold-out Lollapalooza After Show at Lincoln Hall. And on Friday, July 31, the band takes the stage at Lollapalooza.
Tickets are now on sale for MS MR’s North American/European fall headline tour, which kicks off September 24 and features supporting acts Circa Waves, Jack Garratt, VÉRITÉ, Crater, Tigertown and more. Throughout the tour, MS MR will be donating a portion of every ticket sold to an inspiring organization, Third Wave Fund, a national fund that supports and strengthens youth-led gender justice activism.
