Mitski releases new song ‘Cop Car’ taken from ‘The Turning’ soundtrack

Mitski has released her new song ‘Cop Car’ which has been taken from the soundtrack of the forthcoming new horror film The Turning.

The film, directed by Floria Sigismondi, includes the likes of Courtney Love, Warpaint, Kim Gordon and more big names who have contributed to the project.

The supernatural horror film, written by Carey W. Hayes, Chad Hayes, and Jade Bartlett, will arrive next year as a modern adaptation of the 1898 horror novella The Turn of the Screw by Henry James. With Steven Spielberg acting as an executive producer, the film will star the likes of Mackenzie Davis, Brooklynn Prince, Joely Richardson and Stranger Things actor Finn Wolfhard.

“For more than 100 years, a deeply haunting tale has been passed down to terrify audiences,” the synopsis reads. “The Turning takes us to a mysterious estate in the Maine countryside, where newly appointed nanny Kate (Mackenzie Davis) is charged with the care of two disturbed orphans, Flora (Brooklynn Prince) and Miles (Finn Wolfhard). Quickly though, she discovers that both the children and the house are harbouring dark secrets and things may not be as they appear.”

While that should be enough to satisfy your interest, the film has recruited yet more big names to contribute to its soundtrack with 19 big hitters all collaborating. “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,” soundtrack producer Lawrence Rothman explains. “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.
