Mitski laughs off similarities between her and Mac DeMarco’s album

Mac DeMarco just released a video for new single “Nobody,” in which he sports a cowboy hat, robe, and mottled green lizard face, and sings an underwhelming song about, um, television?

It was released in advance of his new album Here Comes the Cowboy, out in May.In a statement about the album release, DeMarco, who’s become a meme for his wholly unoriginal love of smoking, says it’s his “cowboy record. Cowboy is a term of endearment to me, I use it often when referring to people in my life. Where I grew up, there are many people that sincerely wear cowboy hats and do cowboy activities. These arent the people Im referring to.”

It was quickly pointed outthat singer Mitski also has a song called “Nobody,” off 2018’s Grammy-nominated album Be the Cowboy. Had DeMarco heard her album? According to his rep, no. Addressing the similarities, Mitski tweeted that she’s “100% sure mac & I just went fishing in the same part of the collective unconscious!” She added that her “personal conspiracy theory” is their mutual PR rep “heard the album+track titles but kept quiet thinking maybe some Mac fans will mistakenly find me loll.”

Perhaps this was some kind of fevered alliance between PR and SEO, but on Twitter, some people weren’t buying it, or felt it represented larger issues of sexism and appropriation in the music industry. Others brought up a 2015 allegation that DeMarco filmed someone masturbating in the presence of minors. (DeMarco’s former bandmate Alex Calder was accused of sexual assault in 2017.)

While fans rallied around and defended Mitski, she tweeted that she wasn’t sure why everyone was getting upset, stating: “i’m laughing!”
