Preparing for her forthcoming LP Laurel Hell, slated to drop on February 4, Mitski releases the music video for her new song “Love Me More.”
Speaking on the record, she shares, “‘Love Me More’ went through the most iterations out of all the songs on the album. It’s been too fast, too slow, and at some point, it was even an old-style country song. Finally, I think because we had watched The Exorcist, we thought of Mike Oldfield’s ‘Tubular Bells’ and experimented with floating an ostinato over the chorus.” She adds, “As we steadily evolved the ostinato to fit over the chord progressions, we began to hear how the track was meant to sound.”
Directed by Christopher Good, the visual opens to Mitski riding a motorcycle before things take a turn for the songstress as she sings about desiring love and the emotions enveloped within those feelings. “Love Me More” arrives weeks removed from her recent string of singles “Working for the Knife,” “The Only Heartbreaker,” and “Heat Lightning.” All four are slated to appear on the highly-awaited Laurel Hell, but in the meantime, watch the video below.
