Mitski announces new album, Puberty 2, releases lead single “Your Best American Girl”

Today, the Brooklyn rock artist, Mitski, has announced the follow-up to her debut Bury Me At Make Out Creek named, Puberty 2, which due out June 17th throughDead Oceans.

According to the press release, Puberty 2 shows the artist born as Mitski Miyawaki exploring how happiness can be virtually as damaging as sadness. “When you realize you can’t have one without the other, it’s possible to spend periods of happiness just waiting for that other wave,” she explains. Considered “kind of a two parter” with its predecessor, the record has a similar vibe to the previous one. “I had a certain confidence this time,” Mitski says. “I knew what I wanted, knew what I was doing and wasn’t afraid to do things that some people may not like.”

You can hear that on lead single “Your Best American Girl.”

Take a listen below.
