On Thursday, the show shared a clip of her performance of “I Will” with Rolling Stone, featuring her now-trademark stage choreography atop a kitchen table.
Mitski is currently on hiatus from music and live performances, following more than five years of touring her albums Bury Me at Makeout Creek (2014), Puberty 2 (2016), and Be the Cowboy (2018). She closed out her most recent tour with a two-night residency at Central Park’s SummerStage in New York this past September, with Lucy Dacus as her opening act.
“It’s time to be a human again,” she tweeted in June. “I’ve been on nonstop tour for over five years, I haven’t had a place to live during this time, and I sense that if I don’t step away soon, my self-worth/identity will start depending too much on staying in the game.”
The full Austin City Limits episode will include seven more songs from Mitski, along with a set by North Carolina band Rainbow Kitten Surprise.
