Mitski reveals new single ‘Love Me More’

It comes ahead of the release of her new album, ‘Laurel Hell’.

Ahead of the release of her eagerly-awaited new album ‘Laurel Hell’ on 4th February on Dead Oceans, Mitski is sharing new single ‘Love Me More’ alongside the accompanying video. “As ‘Love Me More’ was written pre-pandemic, lyrics like ‘If I keep myself at home’ had different meanings than what they would now, but I kept them on the album because I found that some of the sentiments not only remained the same, but were accentuated by the lockdown,” Mitski says. “‘Love Me More’ went through the most iterations out of all the songs on the album. It’s been too fast, too slow, and at some point, it was even an old style country song. Finally, I think because we had watched The Exorcist, we thought of Mike Oldfield’s ‘Tubular Bells’ and experimented with floating an ostinato over the chorus. As we steadily evolved the ostinato to fit over the chord progressions, we began to hear how the track was meant to sound.” Check it out below. ‘Laurel Hell’ Tracklisting: 1. Valentine, Texas 2.
