Mitski has announced a new album, Be The Cowboy. The follow-up to 2016’s Puberty 2 arrives August 17 via Dead Oceans. “For this new record, I experimented in narrative and fiction,” Mitski said in a statement. While recording the album with her long-time producer Patrick Hyland, she said they 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.” She continued, “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.”

Mitski has also shared the video for the album’s first single. Watch the Zia Anger-directed visual for “Geyser,” and find the LP’s tracklist and cover art below.
