Today MS MR, moniker for Lizzy Plapinger and Max Hershenow, revealed their debut pop album Secondhand Rapture’s artwork and full track listing out May 14th in the U.S. on Columbia Records. Secondhand Rapture is comprised of twelve tracks that were produced by Hershenow, with additional production and mix by Tom Elmhirst.

Earlier this month, MS MR revealed their first official music video for the song “Fantasy” on their new album and another video for the song “Hurricane,” which you can watch below. The duo describes the video as, “Shot on location in Jamaica, Queens with our dear friend and talented director Austin Peters, the video for ‘Fantasy’ stays true to the main themes and questions behind the track: things we imagine or think we understand are not as they appear. This video presents a world filled with fantasies gone wrong where the mundane, the surreal and the supernatural are all intertwined and what is real becomes a matter of perspective.” Also included on the album is the track “Bones” which was set to the Games of Thrones season 3 trailer, which you can also see below!

You can catch the duo as they continue their exciting touring streak by opening up for Jessie Ware in New York, Canada, Seattle, and San Francisco before going out on their first headline tour in May. MS MR is also confirmed for the Boston Calling and Governors Ball festivals this summer. Make sure to catch MS MR on tour and be ready May 14th for their debut album release Secondhand Rapture on Columbia Records.
