Mitski releases new song 'Love Me More'.

Ahead of her upcoming new album 'Laurel Hell' next month (out February 4th), Mitski has today shared a new song, 'Love Me More', which arrives accompanied by a music video shot in Kansas City in December 2020.

About the new song, Mitski says: "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."
