TORRES - New Album 'Three Futures' Out September, Stream Title Track Now
TORRES : New Album 'Three Futures' Out September, Stream Title Track Now
12th July 2017

On 29th September, 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, all shot and directed by Ashley Connor.  As described by FADER, the video is “rendered with the repressed, vibrant sadness of a Todd Haynes melodrama”.

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.

Three Futures is released on limited gold vinyl, CD and on all digital platforms on 29th September.
