Mitski Announces 2022 Tour, Returns With Video for New Song “Working for the Knife”

Mitski is back. Today, in addition to announcing a 2022 tour, she’s shared a new song called “Working for the Knife,” which arrives with a new video directed by Zia Anger (with Ashley Connor directing photography). The song was produced by Mitski’s frequent collaborator Patrick Hyland, and the video was filmed at the Egg in Albany, New York. Watch it, plus find Mitski’s tour dates and the single’s artwork, below.

“It’s 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,” Mitski said of the new song in a statement. “It’s being confronted with a world that doesn’t seem to recognize your humanity, and seeing no way out of it.”

Mitski’s last album was 2018’s Be the Cowboy, which was named Pitchfork’s No. 1 album of 2018. Read Pitchfork’s feature “Don’t Cry for Mitski.”
