Snail Mail Murders a Guy, Eats Some Cake in Return Single ‘Valentine’

“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

After years of anticipation, Snail Mail has announced the new album Valentine, out November 5th via Matador.

Lindsey Jordan dropped the title track ahead of its release, accompanied by a video that resembles a period drama. Betrayed by a lover at a dinner party, she stuffs her face with cake — and then murders the man who stole her partner away. “Fuck being remembered,” she sings over a gritty guitar riff. “I think I was made for you.”

Valentine follows Jordan’s breakout album Lush, released in 2018. “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,” she said of the album, which she co-produced with Brad Cook. “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!”

Waxahatchee’s Katie Crutchfield penned the album bio, providing a backstory that included Jordan’s stay at a recovery facility in Arizona. “On the heels of life-altering success, a painful breakup, and six weeks in treatment, Jordan appears vibrant and sharp,” she writes. “Leaving room for a long and storied path, Valentine is somehow a jolt and a lovebuzz all at once.”

Jordan will tour in support of Valentine, kicking off in Richmond, Virginia, on November 27th. After a European leg in early 2022, she’ll return to the States in the spring, wrapping up on May 8th in Nashville.
