Mitski Releases New Song ‘Cop Car’ for Upcoming Thriller ‘The Turning’

Mitski’s brief hiatus from music appears to be over, as the 29-year-old artist released a new single Tuesday in “Cop Car.” The song will be featured in upcoming thriller film The Turning, an adaptation of the Henry James novel The Turn of the Screw.

In a statement, soundtrack producer Lawrence Rothman said Mitski’s contribution “went beyond” what they imagined, and will be placed in a pivotal point for one of the movie’s characters.

“There is a pinnacle scene where Kate’s mind starts to unravel while in her car and we needed a cinematic but grunge influenced song shadowing the scene,” Rothman said. “I reached out to Mitski to see if she wanted to get involved as Floria and I had a feeling she would deliver a song that was guitar-based but cinematic. ‘Cop Car’ went beyond what we imagined and we were ecstatic when she sent it to us!”

“Cop Car” is Mitski’s first release since her 2018 album Be the Cowboy. The Turning and it’s soundtrack releases Friday, Jan. 24.
