Mitski releases video for “Nobody”

Mitski releases new video for "Nobody."
Mitski "Nobody"

Be The Cowboy, the new full-length by Mitski, is due for release on August 17th via Dead Oceans, and tour North America surrounding its release, including five newly announced August shows.

During recording sessions with producer Patrick Hyland, the pair kept returning to “the image of someone alone on a stage, singing solo with a single spotlight trained on them in an otherwise dark room. For most of the tracks, we didn’t layer the vocals with doubles or harmonies, to achieve that campy ‘person singing alone on stage’ atmosphere. We also made the music swell louder than the main vocals and left in vocal errors like when my voice breaks in ‘Nobody,’ right when the band goes quiet, all for a similar effect.”

After sharing Be The Cowboy opener, “Geyser,” Mitski has released a new video for “Nobody,” directed by Christopher Good. “We shot this video over five days in both sides of Kansas City. I’ve never been able to take this much time to shoot a video, so it was wonderful to have the space to get the details right, as well as actually hang out and have fun with everyone involved. This video made me fall unexpectedly in love with Kansas City.”
