Mitski Details New Album, Shares Video for New Single ‘Bug Like an Angel’

    Mitski has released ‘Bug Like an Angel’, the first single from her recently announced album The Land Is Inhospitable and So Are We. The record’s release date has now been revealed, too: the follow-up to 2022’s Laurel Hell is out September 15 via Dead Oceans. ‘Bug Like an Angel’ arrives with an accompanying directed by Noel Paul, which depicts a woman staggering and collapsing outside of a bar, embraced and ultimately rejected by a choir of which Mitski is a member. Check it out and find the album’s cover artwork and tracklist below.

    Billed as Mitski’s “most sonically expansive, epic, and wise album to-date,” The Land Is Inhospitable and So Are We was recorded at the Bomb Shelter in East Nashville and Sunset Sound Studios in Los Angeles. It incorporates an orchestra arranged and conducted by Drew Erickson, as well as a 17-person choir arranged by Mitski. Working with longtime producer Patrick Hyland, Mitski drew inspiration from everything from Ennio Morricone’s bombastic Spaghetti Western scores to Carter Burwell’s Fargo soundtrack.
