Mitski has teamed up with Z2 Comics to create the soundtrack for a new graphic novel. She’s making music to accompany writer Chris Miskiewicz and artist Vincent Kings’ upcoming book This Is Where We Fall. A softcover edition of the novel will be available widely in March 2021. Also that month, the hardcover edition is available at the Z2 website. Mitski’s original score will be available on vinyl and cassette at Z2.
“It was exciting to make a soundtrack for a comic book,” Mitski said in a press release. “It 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 being both freeing and challenging. I hope the end result helps to immerse you in the story!”
Z2 publisher Josh Frankel added: “A project and partnership like this is the perfect marriage of a visual art form like comics, and music. Fans of Mitski’s music will not only get something new from one of their favorite artists, but a companion piece that completes the experience. Comics readers will find an original work of science fiction from top creators that is enhanced by the music that accompanies it.”
Mitski released her most recent studio album Be The Cowboy in 2018. Earlier this year, she shared a new song called “Cop Car,” and hopped on Allie X’s track “Susie Save Your Love.” Revisit Pitchfork’s Profile “Don’t Cry for Mitski.”
