On February 14, 2022’s Valentine’s Day, American indie rock soloist Snail Mail, the project of guitarist, singer and songwriter Lindsey Jordan, released “Adore You,” a demo version of the titular track off of her critically acclaimed album, Valentine.
“Adore You” features evolving lyrics and a different structure. As a result, the whispered, vulnerable lo-fi version provides a sonically opposite yet equally devastating flipside, proving that in any configuration, “Valentine” is as powerful a lovelorn torch song as they come. However, shortly after Jordan released Valentine, she was diagnosed with vocal cord polyps, requiring surgery and a North American 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 host Carmel Holt.
Snail Mail will also play an extensive run of North American, UK and European tour dates in 2022. The US dates kick off in Philadelphia on April 5th. Highlights include The Kings Theatre in Brooklyn on April 8th and The Palladium in Los Angeles on April 27th. For a full list of dates and location, check out Snail Mail’s website here.
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 Colbert. On 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.
