TORRES Announces New Album Thirstier, Shares Video for New Song: Watch

TORRES, aka singer-songwriter Mackenzie Scott, has announced a new album called Thirstier. The follow-up to last year’s Silver Tongue arrives July 30 via Merge. Today’s announcement comes with the release of the lead single, “Don’t Go Puttin Wishes in My Head.” Watch the music video (shot in Scott’s apartment with her partner) below, and scroll down for the album art (by Jenna Gribbon), tracklist, and a string of North American and European tour dates.

Thirstier was co-produced by Scott, Rob Ellis, and Peter Miles. She recorded the new album in the fall of 2020 at Middle Farm Studios in the United Kingdom. “I’ve been conjuring this deep, deep joy that I honestly didn’t feel for most of my life,” she said of the new LP in a press release. “I feel like a rock within myself. And I’ve started to feel that I have what it takes to help other people conjure their joy, too.”

Scott added: “I wanted to channel my intensity into something that felt positive and constructive, as opposed to being intense in a destructive or eviscerating way. I love the idea that intensity can actually be something life-saving or something joyous.”

In addition, Scott described “Don’t Go Puttin Wishes in My Head” as “[her] relentless arena country star moment—[her] shameless Tim McGraw cheeseball hit.”
