The final advance single from Mitski’s Laurel Hell was “Love Me More,” a poppy new wave track that spent its runtime piling on jittery tension, in part through a dizzying array of synth melodies. Today that song gets a remix from Clark, who at first plays up the frenetic elements in the song and then extracts them altogether, as if all that kinetic energy has finally been exhausted.

“Clark’s music, specifically his album Death Peak, was what opened my eyes to contemporary electronic music,” Mitski writes in a press release. “It showed me how emotive it could be. So when I was asked to do a remix, he was the first and only person that came to mind for the job.” Clark adds, “Huge pleasure to be asked to do this, thank you. I love what Mitski does. I spent ages on the kick. Haven’t done that for a while, but it all comes flooding back.”
