    As Lindsey Jordan readies her next Snail Mail album, the 22-year-old indie rocker has offered up a new single, titled “Ben Franklin.” Check out the lovelorn track via its Josh Coll-directed video below.

    Driven by a head-nodding bassline and bright synths, “Ben Franklin” details a lingering heartbreak that seemingly will never end. “You’re gonna leave a stain,” sings Jordan. “Like a relapse does when you really try/ Damn, this time I really tried.”

    “I wanted to sonically and lyrically get out of my comfort zone with ‘Ben Franklin,'” explained Jordan in a statement. “It felt only right that the visual accompaniment should include dancing in front of a camera and holding a 10-foot snake close to my face.”

    In the aforementioned music video, Jordan does indeed wear a snake around her neck while seated on a couch and watching friends play a Nintendo 64 game on a classic style TV. There’s also plenty of carefree dancing on her part.

    “Ben Franklin” appears on Jordan’s upcoming album Valentine, out on November 5th. Previously we heard the title track, and pre-orders are ongoing.

    To promote the LP, Jordan is kicking off a worldwide tour on November 27th in Richmond, Virginia. It will continue through late December before picking back up for a European leg in February and March. Then, she will trek across North America throughout April and into May.
