Mitski has made her return with an eerie new track called “Cop Car.”
The single, which comes from the soundtrack to the horror film The Turning, marks the artist’s first new material since 2018’s Be the Cowboy. Like the other releases from the soundtrack, “Cop Car” is inspired by ’90s grunge, but this one features some eerie atmospheric instrumentals.
“This is a pinnacle scene where Kate’s mind starts to unravel while in her car and we needed a cinematic but grunge influenced song shadowing the scene,” soundtrack producer Lawrence Rothman explains in a statement. “I reached out to Mitski to see if she wanted to get involved as Floria and I had a feeling she would deliver a song that was guitar-based but cinematic. ‘Cop Car’ went beyond what we imagined and we were ecstatic when she sent it to us!”
Listen to “Cop Car” below.
The soundtrack for The Turning drops on Friday, January 24th.
