Mitski has announced her next album, which is called The Land Is Inhospitable and So Are We. She revealed the title in a voice memo that was included in her official newsletter (viewed by Pitchfork). Mitski also said that the album’s lead single will arrive on Wednesday (July 26).
“Hi, this is Mitski, and I’m at Bomb Shelter Studios in Nashville, where we recorded my new album that’s coming out,” Mitski said in the clip. “It’s called The Land Is Inhospitable and So Are We, and its first single is coming out on Wednesday.” Find Mitski’s message below.
A release date has not been set for The Land Is Inhospitable and So Are We, but the new record will mark Mitski’s follow-up to Laurel Hell, which landed in early 2022. After becoming the top-selling album in the United States that same year, Mitski achieved another milestone with Laurel Hell: her single “The Only Heartbreaker” climbed to No. 1 on the Billboard Adult Alternative Airplay chart. It was the first time one of Mitski’s songs had summited a Billboard chart.
