Mitski is releasing her highly-anticipated fifth album, Be The Cowboy, next week via Dead Oceans. Today, she’s shared the record’s third single and closing track “Two Slow Dancers.” The song follows “Geyser” and “Nobody.” In a statement about the slow, minimal song, Mitski says, “They used to have something together that is no longer there and they’re trying to relive it in a dance, knowing that they’ll have to go home and go back to their lives.” Be The Cowboy follows 2016’s Puberty 2. Below, listen to “Two Slow Dancers” and watch Mitski’s most recent KEXP in-studio session from 2017.
