New Album Puberty 2 Out June 17 Via Dead Oceans.
New York native Mitski has shared the second track from her highly anticipated upcoming album Puberty 2. After the alternative rock roar of first single ‘Your Best American Girl‘, ‘Happy’ sees the singer songwriter head into more eclectic territory incorporating drum machines, synths, and saxophone. This is one is much more David Bowie than the Pixies.
Of the track, Mitski says: “Happiness fucks you. Once it’s in your hands you try to hold onto it, but the nature of happiness is that it passes through and eventually leaves, and something else – sadness, anger, a low after the high – has to follow. This song is about this exhaustive and exhausting cycle, and how sometimes one would rather not have any of it at all than be constantly thrown about by the waves of these fleeting states.”
