Snail Mail: Valentine [Matador]

Lindsey Jordan is back with her second album as Snail Mail. Jordan wrote Valentine in 2019 and 2020 and recorded it with producer Brad Cook, who has worked with Bon Iver, Waxahatchee, Bruce Hornsby, and many others. The new LP follows 2018’s Lush, and, ahead of its release, Snail Mail shared the title track, “Ben Franklin,” and “Madonna,” all of which arrived with stylish music videos.
