After playing her "last shows indefinitely" in 2019, Mitski returned on Monday (10/4) to tease a new song, and now it's here! It's called "Working for the Knife," and it was produced by her longtime collaborator Patrick Hyland, with an accompanying video directed by Zia Anger, which you can watch 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 says. "It’s being confronted with a world that doesn’t seem to recognize your humanity, and seeing no way out of it."
Mitski has also announced a huge 2022 tour, beginning in North America in February and March and heading overseas to Europe and the UK in April and May. North American dates include Atlanta, New Orleans, Dallas, Austin, Phoenix, Los Angeles, Portland, Seattle, Detroit, Toronto, Montreal, Boston, NYC, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Nashville, and more, and you can see all dates below.
