Anaïs Mitchell shares new single "Brooklyn Bridge"

Anaïs Mitchell (Hadestown, Bonny Light Horseman, Big Red Machine) has released the second single from her forthcoming new album today. “Brooklyn Bridge” finds Mitchell narrating what she calls “an unbearably romantic” trip over the Brooklyn Bridge colored by Bon Iver member Michael Lewis’ heartstring-tugging saxophone accompaniment.

Mitchell says, “Having left New York, I was able to write a love letter to it in a way I never could when I was living there,” she says. “It was like, fuck it. This is how I feel. There is nothing more beautiful than riding over one of the New York bridges at night next to someone who inspires you.”

Last month Anaïs Mitchell announced her first solo record in over a decade. The self-titled full-length will be available on January 28, 2022 via BMG. Produced by Josh Kaufman, the 10-song album also features core players including Kaufman, Michael Lewis, JT Bates, Thomas Bartlett and Aaron Dessner, with string and flute arrangements provided by Nico Muhly.

Mitchell previously shared the first single from the album, “Bright Star,” a song “about about looking back on years of restless pursuit and making peace with the source of that longing: the Muse, the Great Unknown, the One That Got Away — those things that motivate us that we never can touch.”
