About this deal

Comes in a gatefold with a full color inner sleeve with lyrics, a folded double sided poster, and a download card. With a lot of the romantic infatuations I’ve had,” she says, “when I look back, I wonder, ‘Did I want them or did I want to be them? Her poised vocals and narratives about personal struggle and inner strength are wed to similarly emotive instrumentals across these fourteen tracks. With the mass majority of music critics already lauding 'Be The Cowboy' as one of the top albums of 2018 and Mitski's best to date, I think it would be a great disservice to pass her and this music off as 'wacky' or 'quirky' as I know some people lazily do. For items that are dispatched using our standard service, we ask that you wait 14 days from the date of dispatch before reporting any items as undelivered.

It's certainly a hugely impressive set, with each of the 14 songs dealing with romantic and interpersonal relationships in some way.Be The Cowboy," Mitski delves into the loneliness of being a symbol and the loneliness of being someone, and how it can feel so much like being no one. Infused with a pink glow and mysterious blue light, the performer in Be The Cowboy makes a pact with her audience that the show must go on, but as we draw nearer to the end, a charming ditty recedes into ghostly, faded melancholia, as an angelic voice breaks through to make direct communication.

With a lot of the romantic infatuations I’ve had,” she says, “when I look back, I wonder, Did I want them or did I want to be them? These wonderful traits are perfectly illustrated by 'Nobody', a beautifully sung mix of 70's soft rock and disco elements that somehow make the state of loneliness seem uplifting.Products labelled '*item fulfilled by Exertis on behalf of hmv' will be supplied to you directly by Exertis via their approved couriers. Mitski Miyawaki has always been wary of being turned a symbol, knowing we’re quick to put women on pedestals and even quicker to knock them down. Mournful piano ballads lead into deceptively up-tempo songs like “Nobody” where our cowboy admits, “I know no one will save me/ I just need someone to kiss”. I had been on the road for a long time, which is so isolating, and had to run my own business at the same time,” Mitski explains, “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.

Because women have so little power and showing emotion is seen as weakness, this ‘character’ clings to any amount of control she can get. From behind the metaphor of an oft visited High School Reunion, Two Slow Dancers' gently ease the album to a close, with it's poignant lyrics questioning our mortality to a moving soundtrack of synthesised strings. As usual, all the instruments are played by Mitski and producer Patrick Hyland, save for some spirited horn contributors that do the stomping 'Why Didn't You Stop Me?The self-abasement of desire is strewn across these 14 songs as our heroine seeks out old lovers for secret trysts that end in disappointment, and cannot help but indulge in the masochistic pleasure of blowing up the stability of long-term partnership.
