New album coming from Mitski June 17th

Mitski looks at life through her own, honest, no sh#t lens. Happiness is something that is temporary and always accompanied by sadness. There is a constant push and pull, release followed by tension. Mitski’s music manifests her perspective, allowing us to see through her eyes and hear what she hears.

Her upcoming record, Puberty 2, is a direct follow up to her previous album, Burry Me at Makeout Creek, but is bigger, more refreshing and bursting with life.

She recently released the first single off of Puberty 2 titled, “Your Best American Girl.” It starts subtle and quiet, with her subdued vocals but you can feel the tension bursting at the seams. The energy slowly ramps up then suddenly explodes, shoving the listener backwards with her rattling, loud and impressive voice. It’s here the song remains, high above it’s subtle starting point. It’s an exultant, overpowering introduction to her new record.

 

 

Puberty 2 is out on June 17th on Dead Oceans. You can pre-order it on iTunes, Amazon, through Dead Oceans or support your local record store.
