Jordan burst into the indie rock world in early 2017, when she was still a high school student in Ellicott City, with the single “Thinning,” praised by music site Pitchfork for its “lush” lo-fi dream-pop sound.
She returned a year later with a debut album called, well, “Lush,” eventually named one of the best releases of the year by Billboard, NPR, Entertainment Weekly and many others.
According to a release, listeners can expect plenty of “romance, heartbreak, blood, sweat and tears” in the 10 tracks on “Valentine,” all written by Jordan between 2019-2020.
“I wanted to take as much time as possible with this record to make sure I was happy with every detail before unleashing it unto y’all,” Jordan said in a statement. “Referring to the process as the deepest level of catharsis and therapy I have ever experienced would be a huge understatement. ‘Valentine’ is my child!”MORE NEWS: U.S. Has Enough COVID-19 Vaccines For Boosters, Kids’ Shots
