MØ recently performed live at the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony at Oslo’s Telenor Arena. She played two tracks, her song “New Year’s Eve” and “Lean On” – the collaboration with Major Lazer. In a statement released earlier this month about the ceremony, MØ said:
“I was lucky enough to grow up in a scientific and culturally aware family where developments in human rights and hopes for peace were common topics of conversation. Leading personalities in these areas were revered and were the inspiration for the activism of my youth. I hold the Nobel Peace Prize – indeed, any such recognition for those attempting to affect positive change in our world – in the highest regard.
To be asked to perform at the Nobel Peace Prize concert and to help spread awareness of the important peacemaking work of the National Dialogue Quartet is a great honour. I’m humbled to be part of such a historically important event, and following in the footsteps of previous performers and some of my favourite artists, such as Rihanna, Robyn, Cyndi Lauper, Annie Lennox, and Omar Souleyman“.
