Mitski shared a new piece of music composed for a new graphic novel called This Is Where We Fall. The song, titled “The End”, is narrated by Chris Miskiewicz, the co-creator / writer of the graphic novel. Miskiewicz was also the co-writer of “The Baddy Man” – an excerpt from the soundtrack of the graphic novel that Mitski shared in March. Listen to “The End” below.
This Is Where We Fall, created by Miskiewicz and visual artist Vincent Kings, is available now through Z2 Comics. “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 the cues that come with working with a moving image, which was both liberating and challenging. I hope the end result helps you dive into history! “
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 not only get something new from one of their favorite artists, but also an accompaniment piece that completes the experience. Comic book readers will find an original science fiction work by top creators, which is complemented by the accompanying music.
Mitski’s most recent studio album, Be The Cowboy, was released in 2018.
