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.
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.
