Valentine is the hotly anticipated return of Snail Mail. The sophomore album marks the first new music from Lindsey Jordan since 2018's powerhouse debut Lush, called "truly perfect" by The FADER and included in the top 5 albums of 2018 by Pitchfork.
Valentine was written and produced by Lindsey Jordan and co-produced by Brad Cook (Bon Iver, Waxahatchee). Written in 2019-2020 the album is filled with romance, heartbreak, blood, sweat and tears. The sonic leap forward can be heard from the first moments of the title track - the whispered voice and eerie synths erupting into a full-on stadium-sized adrenaline-rush of a chorus. From there it's all go - with electronic anthems, baroque FM rockers, smoldering slow-jam R&B, and heart rendering finger-picked ballads. The star of the show however is Lindsey's voice. Her vocals and words are rawer, deeper, snarlier, and more feeling than ever before.
"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," Lindsey explains. "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!"
