Mitski is set to release her anticipated new album Be The Cowboy next month. It’s something you should definitely be on the lookout for/excited for. And you already know that having heard the album’s first two singles “Geyser” and “Nobody.” And today, you’re in for a nice treat. No, it’s not another new song from the album (though one should be coming soon, right?). Instead, Mitski has decided to talk all about the lyrics and overall meaning of “Nobody” in a new video.
The new video comes courtesy of Genius, a site dedicated annotating lyrics from every song imaginable. It’s a nice way to dive further into an album you’re listening to as you pour through the annotations from random people across the world. Occasionally, there will be verified annotations from the artist, which are a whole treasure onto themselves. Now though, Mitski has decided to take that idea further and break down the lyrics for “Nobody” in video form. It’s a totally charming little video with Mitski singing her own lyrics, offering bits of wisdom, and of course explaining the origin of the song in question. To really grasp how great a voice Mitski is right now, you gotta give the video a watch down below.
Be The Cowboy is out August 17 via Dead Oceans. Pre-order a copy right here.
