Mitski's album 'Puberty 2' has been a constant companion in the Clash office this year.
A striking, imaginative work, Mitski's songwriting veered from outrageous fancy to the explicitly autobiographical.
Announcing a short burst of European shows, the Stateside artist has also decided to share new video 'A Burning Hill'.
The clip was directed by Bradley Gray, and it reflects the intimacy of the music itself:
"The director and I spent a weekend just driving around New York and Pennsylvania while the camera kept running, and most of the time I'd forget I was being filmed. It felt like a vacation, but it was also quite emotional, as I was thinking about the song and what it means to me now while jumping in rivers and driving down dirt lanes."
