Torres Confirms New Album 'Three Futures' Out September 29

Torres confirms new album 'Three Futures' out September 29 on 4AD

New Song/Video For Title Track - Watch Here:

On September 29, 4AD will release Three Futures, the third full-length album
by TORRES. Today, TORRES unveils the title track and accompanying video, which ties visually into the album’s artwork and the previously released ‘Skim’ video, shot and directed by Ashley Connor.

TORRES is the creative alter-ego of Brooklyn-based Mackenzie Scott. In describing the album, Scott says it “is entirely about using the body that each of us has been given as a mechanism of joy.” The 10 original tracks on Three Futures embrace ecstasy, desire and indulgence rather than self-denial, and exude this idea via immersive music. Mechanized grooves are placed at the forefront, providing a framework for perforated electro-pop static, harsh gothic / industrial textures, and insistent Krautrock motifs.

For Three Futures, Scott reconnected with producer Rob Ellis (PJ Harvey), who worked on TORRES’ last album Sprinter, to record in Stockport and Dorset, England. David Tolomei (Beach House, Future Islands) mixed the album.

Following Sprinter’s release in 2015, TORRES gained critical acclaim from numerous influential publications, including Pitchfork, which named her single ‘Cowboy Guilt’ Best New Track, and the New York Times who wrote, “Her music can smolder while she considers exactly where she stands, and it can roar into feedback-edged howls when her rage or despair boil over.”

Praise for new single ‘Skim’:

"Chilling, guitar-grinding study in lust and betrayal" — ROLLING STONE

“‘Skim’ is a confident statement from an artist growing bolder with her every passing era” — PITCHFORK

“TORRES arrives all guns blazing in this robo-synth pop tune, with swaggering, savage guitar stabs” — THE GUARDIAN

“The song is a hypnotic slow-burn that chugs along with a Depeche Mode groove, spiked with gutsy guitar, psychosexual themes and a dash of religious imagery.” — AMERICAN SONGWRITER
