At Coachella, on Friday, Muna performed a then-unreleased song called “One That Got Away.” Well, now, it’s officially out. “One That Got Away” arrives with a music video directed by Ally Pankiw and Taylor James and starring Australian actor and singer Caitlin Stasey, alongside Muna’s Katie Gavin, Josette Maskin, and Naomi McPherson. Watch it below.

“This song is just rubbing your hot ass in the face of someone who messed up their chance of being with you,” Gavin remarked in a press release. “It’s a bit vengeful and mean, but also fun. Fuck it. Once I sent Naomi and Jo the demo they really took the cockiness in the lyric and vocal performance and carried it to the extreme with the production of the track. It became this super bombastic, Janet Jackson–era track. Ally Pankiw, who directed the music video with Taylor James, then came up with the idea of ​​putting the music video in a criminal underworld, which we thought fit perfectly. Plus we wanted an excuse to dress Jo up like the Bear.”

Muna closed their Coachella set with a performance of “Silk Chiffon,” featuring Phoebe Bridgers, Lucy Dacus, and Julien Baker of Boygenius.
