Mitski announces new Mitski album, shares Mitski video for new Mitski single

This post was originally published on this site

Her Puberty 2 was hailed by many (us included) as one of 2016’s best albums. But it’s been an uncomfortably long time since puberty, you know? Luckily, today, the many post-pubescent may rejoice! For Mitski has announced her long-awaited (even though two years isn’t that long [but what is time anyway, when great music is at stake???]) follow-up, Be The Cowboy.

Commenting on the new album, Mitski reveals that, while maybe not necessarily writing in character, she did experiment with narrative and fiction. More specifically, she kept “a very controlled icy repressed woman who is starting to unravel,” in mind while crafting her songs. “Because women have so little power and showing emotion is seen as weakness, this ‘character’ clings to any amount of control she can get. Still, there is something very primordial in her that is trying to find a way to get out.”

This mindset can certainly be heard in “Geyser,” the lead single and lead track off of Be The Cowboy, where the music swells from a single, looming drone before — as its namesake might — erupting out of the ground, trying to launch all of its pent-up emotion straight into the stratosphere.

Be The Cowboy is set to be released on August 17 via Dead Oceans. You can pre-order it here. While you’re making sure you won’t overdraft on your debit card though, make sure to scroll down to watch the Zia Anger-directed video for “Geyser,” as well as check out the artwork and full tracklisting for Be The Cowboy.
