Snail Mail Announces New Album ‘Valentine’

It's out on November 5th...

Snail Mail returns with new album 'Valentine' on November 5th.

The songwriter took time out, overhauling her work and finding forward paths both in a creative and personal sense.

New album 'Valentine' is the end result of this process, a journey that has taken Snail Mail further than ever before.

She comments: "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!" The title track is online now, with director Josh Coll bringing the video to life. A subversive queer tale in a historical setting, it veers between "terror and devastating beauty…"

Snail Mail continues: "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."

Tune in now.
