And she’s sharing the title track to celebrate!

Three years on since the release of her debut album ‘Lush’, Snail Mail has announced that its eagerly-awaited follow-up ‘Valentine’ will be arriving on 5th November via Matador!

“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,” Lindsey Jordan says. “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!”

Revealing the title track today alongside a dramatic video directed by Josh Coll, Lindsey adds, “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.”
