Mitski (full name Mitski Miyawaki) is releasing a new album, Be the Cowboy, on August 17 via Dead Oceans. Previously she shared a Zia Anger-directed video for its first single, "Geyser," which was our #2 Song of the Week. Now she has announced some new North American fall tour dates for this October and November. Check out the dates below, followed again by the "Geyser" video.

Be the Cowboy is the follow-up to 2016's acclaimed Puberty 2 and was produced with longtime collaborator Patrick Hyland. In a previous press release, Mitski said she and Hyland were drawn to "the image of someone alone on a stage, singing solo with a single spotlight trained on them in an otherwise dark room. For most of the tracks, we didn't layer the vocals with doubles or harmonies to achieve that campy 'person singing alone on stage' atmosphere."

Mitski also said she "experimented in narrative and fiction" and had in mind "a very controlled icy repressed woman who is starting to unravel. Because women have so little power and showing emotion is seen as weakness, this 'character' clings to any amount of control she can get. Still, there is something very primordial in her that is trying to find a way to get out."

"I had been on the road for a long time," she added, "which is so isolating, and had to run my own business at the same time. A lot of this record was me not having any feelings, being completely spent but then trying to rally myself and wake up and get back to Mitski."
