Mitski has released her new album, ‘Be The Cowboy’.
The full-length is out today (Friday, 17th August) and it features previous singles ‘Two Slow Dancers’, ‘Nobody’ and ‘Geyser’.
“For this new record, I experimented in narrative and fiction,” explains Mitski, revealing she had in mind “a very controlled icy repressed woman who is starting to unravel. 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.”
“I had been on the road for a long time, which is so isolating, and had to run my own business at the same time. A lot of this record was me not having any feelings, being completely spent but then trying to rally myself and wake up and get back to Mitski.”
‘Be The Cowboy’ follows up on 2016’s standout ‘Puberty 2’. Check it out below.
