    Nothing signals the beginning of Sad Girl Autumn quite like a a new Snail Mail album. Right on cue, Lindsey Jordan has announced the follow-up to her massive 2018 debut, Lushwith her second LP, Valentine, out November 5th via Matador. Today, the 22-year-old indie rocker is offering a preview of the album with its title track, and she’s also unveiled a lengthy list of worldwide tour dates beginning this fall and heading into 2022.

    Valentine sees Jordan mature from the wide-eyed teen yearning of Lush, further pushing her limits as a songwriter. Her new album sees her adopt a wider array of sonics while still staying authentic to her scrappy, slacker-rock roots. “Referring to the process as the deepest level of catharsis and therapy I have ever experienced would be a huge understatement,” Jordan said in a statement.

    “Valentine” reflects that catharsis, evoking the unflappable fury of a deeply-felt heartbreak: “So why’d you wanna erase me?” Jordan roars. “You’ll always know where to find me when you change your mind.” The absurd music video, directed by Josh Coll, is a period drama-meets-horror comedy that finds Jordan in the midst of unreciprocated love.
