Snail Mail Releases ‘Adore You’

Demo of Title Track From Critically Acclaimed Album ‘Valentine’

Marking Valentine’s Day, Snail Mail (Lindsey Jordan) has shared ‘Adore You’, the early demo version of the lead single and title track off of her critically acclaimed new album Valentine. Featuring early lyrics and a different structure, the whispered, vulnerable lo-fi version is a sonically opposite yet equally devastating flipside to the studio version, proving that in any configuration ‘Valentine’ is as powerful a lovelorn torch song as they come.

A version that once again showcases the range of this artist, a version that offers this new take on the track. Vulnerable and expressive, the audience can embrace every ounce of affection oozing from the vocal melodies and the raw, lo-fi tonality.

Shortly after Jordan released Valentine, she was diagnosed with vocal cord polyps requiring surgery and a North American and European tour postponement. Today, you can listen to her first interview since the surgery on the Sonos Radio show Sheroes: Mixtape Memoir. On the program, Lindsey discusses some of her favorite love songs with Sheroes host Carmel Holt. Last week, Jordan also released a live full band performance video of ‘Valentine’, performed at the Armour-Stiner Octagon House. Watch HERE.

Snail Mail will play an extensive run of UK, European and North American tour dates in 2022. The UK leg begins June 23rd in Manchester and will include a show at London’s Kentish Town Forum on June 29th. All dates are listed below and are available via snailmail.band.

Valentine, the second album from Snail Mail, has emerged as one of 2021’s most celebrated releases, featuring prominently in best of the year roundups from New York Times, Vogue, NME, Pitchfork, The New Yorker and many others. She made her late-night television debut with an appearance on The Late Show With Stephen ColbertOn release, Valentine landed at #1 on the Billboard Emerging Artist Chart and #61 in the Billboard Top 200 in the US, and entered the Top 40 album charts in the UK and Australia.

Valentine was written and produced by 22-year-old 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. But Valentine is poised and self-possessed, channeling its anger and dejection into empowering revenge fantasies and rewriting the narrative of its own fate.
