    Torres is quickly following up the release of last year’s Silver Tongue with a new album called Thirstier. Ahead of the LP’s July 30th release via Merge Records, she’s today unveiling the first single, “Don’t Go Puttin Wishes in My Head”.

    Thirstier was recorded in the fall of 2020 at Middle Farm Studios in the UK and produced by Peter Miles and Rob Ellis, who’ve worked with the likes of PJ Harvey and Bat For Lashes. Written to combat the grey days of the pandemic, the album’s celebratory mood is a healing respite indicative of a hopeful future from the artist’s perspective.

    “I wanted to channel my intensity into something that felt positive and constructive, as opposed to being intense in a destructive or eviscerating way,” Torres, aka Mackenzie Scott, noted in a press release. “I love the idea that intensity can actually be something life-saving or something joyous.”

    Scott calls the lead single, “Don’t Go Puttin Wishes in My Head”, her “relentless arena country star moment — my shameless Tim McGraw cheeseball hit.” The song pairs Scott’s country inspirations with sparkling synths, stringing moments of indie club romanticism into arena-sized guitars. It’s accompanied by a video that provides an intimate look into Torres’ life with her artist girlfriend, Jenna Gribbon, who just so happened to paint the Thirstier album artwork.

    In support of Thirstier, Torres has also detailed an international tour scheduleThe lengthy trek will kick off on August 29th in Fairfield, Connecticut, and includes dates across North America through the end of October. In March of 2022, Torres will bring the show over to the UK and EU. Tickets go on sale May 12th at 10:00 a.m. ET, and you can find them here.

    Check out the “Don’t Go Puttin Wishes in My Head” video ahead, followed by the Thirstier album art and tracklist. Torres’ full tour schedule can be found below that.
