About two and a half weeks after the release of their current single “Supermodel“, Måneskin have released an official music video for said song. You can check out the video below:
“Supermodel” was produced by none other than the Swedish record producer and songwriter Max Martin who was significantly involved in the first worldwide hits by Britney Spears, Backstreet Boys and Katy Perry, to name but a few.
In an interview with NME, Måneskin frontman Damiano David comments on “Supermodel” as follows:
“We always have this portrait of the US as ‘the coolest place in the world where dreams come true and everyone has opportunities!’ That’s true, but then on the other side there’s a lot of injustice, unfairness, homeless people and racist shit. […] At these parties, everyone was a fucking fashion icon. I was thinking, ‘How do they feel when they get home? Are they really happy? Are they really enjoying what they’re doing?’ You want to hang out with this supermodel, but you might get in trouble. It’s like cigarettes: you love them but you know they’re gonna fucking kill you. Still you’re like, ‘Whatever, I gotta die one day’.”– Damiano David
In the same interview, it is also mentioned that Måneskin are currently in Los Angeles, writing and recording their highly anticipated 3rd studio album which was originally supposed to be released at the end of 2021. Furthermore, the winners of the Eurovision Song Contest 2021 are featured on the soundtrack of the upcoming Baz Luhrmann biopic “Elvis”, with their reinterpretation of Elvis Presley‘s “If I Can Dream“.
Both “Supermodel” and “If I Can Dream” were performed live at the final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 in the band’s home country Italy.
