With her eagerly-awaited new album arriving in less than a month, Mitski has now unveiled yet another cut lifted from her forthcoming full-length.
The new single 'Love Me More' comes accompanied by a brilliant new video, directed by Christopher Good, and follows on from the previously shared tracks 'Heat Lightning', 'The Only Heartbreaker', and 'Working for the Knife' in previewing her new LP 'Laurel Hell', which is out on the 4th February via Dead Oceans.
Speaking about the new offering, she said, "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.
"‘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."
