Mitski releasing new LP ‘Be the Cowboy,’ streaming “Gesyer”

Mitski Be the Cowby

Mitski will follow 2016’s great Puberty 2 with a new album, Be the Cowboy, on August 17 via Dead Oceans (pre-order). Mitski once again made the album with longtime collaborator Patrick Hyland, and the lead single is opening track “Geyser,” which seems cut from a similar heavily-arranged indie rock cloth as the Puberty 2 stuff, but also feels like a step forward. Mitski told NPR, “I think this is one of my vaguest songs.” It’s promising stuff. Listen/watch the video (directed by Zia Anger) and view the full tracklist below. That’s the artwork above.

Mitski also has tour dates coming up, including Southern US shows with Katie Von Schleicher, a Woodstock, NY show with Caroline Rose, and more. All dates are listed below.
