Mitski "Two Slow Dancers"

Mitski will release her new album Be The Cowboy, August 17th on Dead Oceans. Today, she is sharing her new single “Two Slow Dancers,” the song is “a projection of two old lovers reunited and reflecting in the adolescent setting of a school gymnasium”. As described by Mitski, “They used to have something together that is no longer there and they’re trying to relive it in a dance, knowing that they’ll have to go home and go back to their lives.”

Mitski plays a week of shows in August leading into a record release show at Elsewhere in Brooklyn on August 18th. She’ll tour Europe and the UK before coming back to the states for an extensive North American tour. The Atlanta and Toronto shows have both been moved to larger venues due to demand.
