Mitski has written and recorded a three-song soundtrack for This Is Where We Fall, a graphic novel that is out today via Z2 Comics. This Is Where We Fall, from author Chris Miskiewicz and artist Vincent Kings, explores an imaginative collision of the popular genres, science-fiction and western.
Compared to Mitski’s first track “The Baddy Man”, a more traditional country tune, her latest release from the soundtrack, “The End” perfectly emulates an eerie sci-fi sound.
“The End” is dark and forceful; it creeps with suspense as gloomy synths and distorted guitars progressively build. Miskiewicz’ gruff cowboy drawl narrates the song, allowing the music to enhance his words, completely immersing you into the story.

In a press release, Mitski said writing the soundtrack “allowed me to work outside of my usual songwriting form and try to approach it like a score, but without any of the cues that come with working alongside a moving image, which ended up both freeing and challenging”.
