Following on from the release of her brilliant debut album 'Hush' back in 2018, Snail Mail has now announced her plans for her new LP 'Valentine', which is set to be released on the 5th November via Matador.
The new full-length is being previewed by the record's title-track, which comes accompanied by a brilliant Josh Coll-directed video.
Speaking about the new record, she said, "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!"
While adding about the new video, "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."
