Major cities holding the special screenings include New York City, London, Tokyo, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Nashville. “Please note — this is not a performance, and Mitski will not be in attendance,” a press release for the event states, according to Stereogum.

Mitski revealed her seventh studio album in a 15-second, voice-over-only video last month. “Hi, this is Mitski, and I’m at Bomb Shelter Studios in Nashville, where we recorded my new album that’s coming out,” Mitski said. “It’s called The Land is Inhospitable and So Are We, and its first single is coming out on Wednesday.”

Mitski released her new album’s debut single, “Bug Like an Angel,” on July 26. The song’s release was accompanied by a music video, which currently holds 1.6 million views on YouTube. The video is directed by Noel Paul. Mitski then released two more singles, “Star” and “Heaven,” just last week.

According to Brooklyn Vegan, Mitski released a statement regarding what audiences should expect from her forthcoming album. “This is my most American album,” Mitski said. “The best thing I ever did in my life was to love people. I wish I could leave behind all the love I have, after I die, so that I can shine all this goodness, all this good love that I’ve created onto other people.”
