Mitski Unveils Latest Single ‘Love Me More’

The rollout has felt like forever (the first single “Working for the Knife” was released in October), but every song has been worth it. The latest one, “Love Me More,” which was released today, joins that club.

The song is an upbeat, new wave-infused that really takes off. Yet at the same time, the song has the same wrenching lyrics that’s made Mitski a favorite in the first place.

“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,” she sad in a statement.

“‘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.”

In addition to “Love Me More” and “Working for the Knife,” Mitski has released “The Only Heartbreaker” and “Heat Lightning” from Laurel Hell. The album is out on February 4 through Dead Oceans.

If you’re trying to see Mitski live, it’s going to be a challenge as most dates are sold out.
