Italian rockers Måneskin have treated us all to their new single, SUPERMODEL. The four-piece returned to the Eurovision stage over the weekend, a year following their win, to perform the track live for the first time.


Produced by acclaimed producer Max Martin (Taylor Swift, The Weeknd, Coldplay), the track forays into contemporary-based rock ’n’ roll sonics, built upon rhythmic percussion and fierce guitar melodies. Frontman Damiano David's captivating vocals simmer atop, with the songs conceptual nature inspired by the personalities they've encountered during their travels through Los Angeles and what hides beneath their perfect facade.



"We wrote Supermodel after spending the best few months in LA. At times we were surprised yet intrigued to find how people cared so much about the idea of “celebrity” and status, obsessing over their looks and connections." the band share. “We started to imagine an enigmatic Supermodel character. She is really cool, fun and social, yet in reality she is troubled, hiding sadness and addiction. In a way you love her, because she knows how to have a good time, but you also want to avoid her, because she might get you into trouble”


Made up of vocalist Damiano David, bassist Victoria de Angelis, guitarist Thomas Raggi, and drummer Ethan Torchio, the four-piece burst onto the scene in 2017 when they finished second on X Factor Italia. Last year, they took home the crown at the Eurovision Song Contest 2021 with their song Zitti e buoni, which gave the band a legion of new fans worldwide.



Following their massive win, Måneskin's lustful track I WANNA BE YOUR SLAVE and their cover of The Four Seasons' Beggin' has topped the charts worldwide, with the latter hitting 4x ARIA Platinum. Having spent the last year performing across Europe and North America, the band recently made their Coachella debut and have teased their cover of If I Can Dream for the ELVIS: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. Måneskin are set to embark on a vastly sold-out North American tour this November, before taking their live show to Europe early next year.
