Snail Mail Announces Her New Album ‘Valentine’ With A Video For The Dynamic Title Track

Snail Mail (aka Lindsey Jordan) established herself as one of indie’s most promising up-and-comers with her 2018 album Lush, and now she’s ready to follow it up: She announced today that her sophomore album is called Valentine and it’s set to release on November 5. She also shared a video for the title track, a song that starts out guided by mellow, atmospheric guitars before bursting into a kinetic chorus.

Jordan says of the video:

“It was so rewarding concocting this video alongside the brilliant Josh Coll! Watching a few perverse images in my head metamorphose into this gorgeous storyline and eventually into a tangible visual was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. We connected over a mutual interest in the intersection between terror and devastating beauty. But also Tim And Eric and watered down ginger ale, which I had to drink a shocking amount of in those drink-bombing scenes.”

She also said of the album, “I wanted to take as much time as possible with this record to make sure I was happy with every detail before unleashing it unto y’all. Referring to the process as the deepest level of catharsis and therapy I have ever experienced would be a huge understatement. Valentine is my child!”
