Baltimore-based singer, songwriter, and guitar prodigy Snail Mail, the moniker of 20-year-old Lindsey Jordan, has re-issued its breakout EP, Habit, available now digitally, with the physical version coming out on August 30th. The re-mastered EP contains its six original songs, including fan-favorite single, “Thinning,” as well as Snail Mail’s cover of Courtney Love’s “The 2nd Most Beautiful Girl In The World,” an alternative version of which was previously only available as an Amazon exclusive. Habit was Matador Records’ introduction to Jordan’s standout vocals, lyrics, technical skills, and compositions that led to their signing of Snail Mail, right around her 18th birthday in 2017.
ICYMI, Snail Mail contributed an original song to EA Games’ latest installment of The Sims, The Sims 4: Living Island, which came out last Friday. “Rizbeen” is an original new recording of Snail Mail hit, “Pristine,” with the lyrics translated into Simlish.
Snail Mail’s 2018 full-length debut, Lush, has sold over 45,000 copies in the US, with over 30 million streams to date. Lush was included in Best of 2018 Year-End lists from the likes of Rolling Stone, NPR, The Atlantic, USA Today, Entertainment Weekly, Pitchfork, Wall Street Journal, Stereogum, Esquire, and more.
Since Lush's release last year, Jordan’s music was the soundtrack to Anna Sui’s Fall 2019 fashion show, she’s been interviewed by Nardwuar, was the subject of a FADER mini-documentary, landed a New York Times Arts Section feature, befriended Liz Phair for a Pitchfork story, made her late night debut on Last Call with Carson Daly, and counts both JPEGMAFIA and Finn Wolfhard as fans. Never one to slow down, Snail Mail will embark on a lengthy North American tour this summer, headlining some of the biggest venues that it has played to date.
