Snail Mail has returned with news of her upcoming second album Valentine, and has released the title-track as a first taster of the record.
Speaking about the accompanying video, Snail Mail, real name Lindsey Jordan, explains, "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."
Valentine is written and produced by Jordan, and co-produced by Brad Cook (Bon Iver, Waxahatchee).
Jordan adds of the her second 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!"
