Aluna Announces New Album “MYCELiUM” & Shares Tour Dates

Grammy-nominated artist Aluna has unveiled exciting details about her highly anticipated sophomore album, MYCELiUM, set to release on July 7th, 2023, via Mad Decent. Alongside this announcement, Aluna has also revealed the official artwork, track listing, and featured guests, giving a glimpse into this brilliant body of work and an exciting new chapter in her career.

The first official single from the album, titled “Oh The Glamour,” is out now. The track is a delightful deep groove collaboration with Brazilian Grammy-nominated artist Pabllo Vittar, Grammy and Brit-nominated MNEK, and UK producer Eden Prince. “Oh The Glamour” serves as a tantalizing preview of what listeners can expect from MYCELiUM.

In discussing the inspiration behind “Oh The Glamour,” Aluna poses the question, “What is the allure of glamour?” She goes on to explain how glamour holds its power in the aspirations of those facing life’s struggles. Aluna adds, “Black and LGBTQ+ people go through a lot of shit, but we often present ourselves as glamorous. Being glamorous is an aspiration that drags you out of bed. Aiming for normal and average is a way to send yourself into the shackles of society. Glamour can often be a method to break free, celebrate, and thrive.”

Aluna also shared her thoughts on the forthcoming album, emphasizing the concept of mycelium as the cell network seeped into the fabric of nature. “I’m not talking about the bloom or the fruits. You need to lay the groundwork to see the fruit one day. I got burnt out from trying to work with powerful people who have lots of money and no actual genuine care for what I’m trying to do. I realized there was no foundation where I was standing, and we have to build our own foundation. It’s not going to be all bells and whistles; it’s going to be substance. So, I broke some barriers and started mentoring creative fans. I built a community of Black Ravers on Geneva and by joining groups on Instagram and social media. Now, the album is my community I’ve created,” explains Aluna.

MYCELiUM is a timeless celebration of ’90s era dance music and the communities and cultures that have influenced its movement and message. The album features collaborations with artists such as Route94, TSHA, The Picard Brothers, Kaleena Zanders, Tchami, Kareen Lomax, Jayda G, Preditah, Lauren Faith, Chris Lake, MK, Walker & Royce, and Kooldrink.
