VIDEO: Snail Mail Releases New Music Video 'Ben Franklin'

Snail Mail (Lindsey Jordan) recently announced the November 5th release of her new album Valentine via Matador. Today, she shares a new single "Ben Franklin," along with a companion music video directed by Josh Coll.

Lindsey shares, "I wanted to sonically and lyrically get out of my comfort zone with Ben Franklin. 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."

"Ben Franklin" follows the unveiling of the album's title track, "Valentine," and it's outrageous period drama clip, also directed by Coll.

A hugely anticipated follow-up, 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, channelling its anger and dejection into empowering revenge fantasies and rewriting the narrative of its own fate.

Snail Mail has also announced a worldwide tour including US runs both in the fall of 2021 and the spring of 2022, with UK and European dates kicking off in February of 2022.
