Mitski has released another track from her forthcoming LP Laurel Hell, which is out February 4 via Dead Oceans. “Love Me More” comes with a video directed by Christopher Good, who previously directed “Nobody.” Watch it below. Mitski said of the new song in a statement:

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.

Laurel Hell includes the previously shared songs “Working for the Knife,” “The Only Heartbreaker,” and “Heat Lightning.” She will set out on a sold out tour in support of the album this year. Mitski’s last album was 2018’s Be the Cowboy.
