PREMIERE: MuMu strips back ‘Brooklyn Tonight’ for first offering of 2022

She closed 2021 with the original version of this song and we’ve gotta say, the rework is just as good, if not better. If MuMu – the New York-based Madeline Rhodes – is new to you, listen to this and then go seek out her other stuff immediately. A sultry acoustic spin on the track she released in December, ‘Brooklyn Tonight’ gets the unplugged treatment, and we’ve got the premiere.

Rhodes says of the song: “I was initially inspired by a friend asking me to write a song about being the only queer person in the room. Then my love brain took over and it turned into a queer lady love song because, well, we need more of those. This is an acoustic version of the original for those queer lady slow jammers. … [It’s] about being at a party in Brooklyn and wondering, ‘Why am I here? How am I going to get home with the F-ing F train down? And then, just when it seems like the worst night ever, I meet this beauteous human.”

It’s Rhodes’ first offering of 2022, out tomorrow via In-Kind/Orchard, and you can stream it below.
