Snail Mail announces new album ‘Valentine’ with bloody video for title track

The follow-up to 2018's 'Lush' is out in November via Matador, and will be toured in the UK next year

Snail Mail has announced details of her second album – ‘Valentine’ is set to come out later this year and is being previewed by its title track.

The follow-up to Lindsey Jordan’s 2018 debut album ‘Lush’ will land on November 5 via Matador, and will be toured around the UK next year.

“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,” Jordan said in a statement.

“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!”

Along with the announcement of the album, Snail Mail has shared a bloody video for the album’s title track.

Speaking of the video, she added: “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.”

Reviewing Snail Mail’s debut album ‘Lush’ upon its release in 2018, NME wrote: “Right now, Lindsey Jordan is being lifted up as the next gatekeeper of indie-rock. One (very good) album feels a little too early to coronate her just yet, but ‘Lush’ is setting its creator on the right path, at least.”
