Mitski has shared a new song.

Love Me More is the fourth cut to be lifted from her new album 'Laurel Hell', following previous singles Heat Lightning, Working for the Knife and The Only Heartbreaker.

The track offers up '80s pop-esque synth and piano melodies as part of a melodic indie-rock-leaning soundscape. Head below to watch its Christopher Good-directed accompanying video, which finds Mitski in a number of interesting, artistic scenarios. 

Discussing the song, 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."

The follow-up to 2018's 'Be The Cowboy' is due out on February 4 via Dead Oceans.  Mitski will support it with tour dates throughout this yera, kicking off in North America in February, followed by UK and European shows in the spring, marking her first appearances there since 2018.
