Mitski Returns After Two Years With New Single "Working for the Knife"

Mitski has returned after a two-year hiatus with the brand new single, “Working for the Knife.”

The latest track is a synth offering produced by longtime collaborator Patrick Hyland, and is described by Mitski as a cut “about going from being a kid with a dream, to a grown up with a job, and feeling that somewhere along the way you got left behind. It’s being confronted with a world that doesn’t seem to recognize your humanity, and seeing no way out of it.”

In addition to “Working for the Knife,” the Japanese-American artist announced a series of tour dates set to kick off in February 2022 in North Carolina. Fans can catch the Be the Cowboy artist in areas like New Orleans, Los Angeles, Toronto and New York until March then in Europe and the U.K. in April.
