Torres Announces “Three Futures” LP & Shares The Video For Title Track

TORRES1_AshleyConnor

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, all 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: perforated electro-pop static, gothic industrial’s harsh textures and insistent Kraut rock.

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.
