Snail Mail Tackle Divine Intervention in ‘Madonna’

“It’s about why love can’t exist between a person and a concept of a person,” Lindsey Jordan says

Days before the release of Snail Mail’s new album, Valentine, Lindsey Jordan and Co. have released the blistering single “Madonna.”

The video for the song, filmed at the Armour-Stiner Octagon House in Irvington, New York, features Jordan tearing through the track. “Body and blood, lover’s curse,” she sings, dressed in an autumnal vest and corduroy. “Divine intervention’s too much work.”

“I am excited to share this one!” Jordan said in a statement. “In summation, it’s about why love can’t exist between a person and a concept of a person. Remove the pedestal and you might realize there was never anything there at all.”

“Madonna” follows the singles “Ben Franklin” and the title track, which Jordan dropped last month. Valentine, out this Friday, follows her 2018 breakout album, Lush. “Referring to the process as the deepest level of catharsis and therapy I have ever experienced would be a huge understatement,” she said. “Valentine is my child!”

Jordan will kick off a tour in support of the record at the National in Richmond, Virginia, on Nov. 27, touring through Dec. 21. Following a stint overseas in early 2022, she’ll return for a North American leg in April.
