New York-based singer Mitski Miyawaki has become somewhat of an icon since she started her career in 2012. Well…somewhat might be somewhat of an understatement. Known onstage simply as Mitski, Miyawaki has a certain energy that’s both genuine and charming, something that’s landed her opening spots for The Pixies and Lorde.
With her fifth album, Be The Cowboy, Mitski explored the duality of fame and loneliness in an effort to reconnect with her emotions after an extended period of touring. It’s confident. It’s heartbreaking. It’s Mitski at her finest.
Be The Cowboy came out today so enjoy the full album when you have a chance. Appearing just past the halfway point on Be The Cowboy‘s fourteen tracks is the album’s lead single, “Nobody”.
