TORRES Shares Video for New Song “Dressing America” and Announces New Tour Dates

TORRES (aka MacKenzie Scott) is releasing a new album, Silver Tongue, on January 31 via Merge. Now she has shared another song from the album, "Dressing America," via a video for the track that sometimes finds her mainly undressed. It's the final pre-release single from the album. She has also announced some new tour dates. Watch the video below, followed by all of TORRES' upcoming tour dates.

Ashley Connor directed the video and had this to say about it: "An ode to every sacrificial act of love. Starring our hero Cowboy Mackenzie, who will gladly carry any lover through the snow. A few friends made the video during the December squall."

Previously TORRES shared Silver Tongue's first single and opening track, "Good Scare," which was one of our Songs of the Week. Then she shared another song from it, "Gracious Day" (an earlier version of "Gracious Day" was previously shared in 2018).

Silver Tongue is her first album for Merge and follows Three Futures, which was released in September 2017 via 4AD. In April 2018, only a few months after Three Futures' release, in a Twitter post Scott announced that 4AD had dropped her for "not being commercially successful enough." Scott fully self-produced Silver Tongue, a first for her.

A previous press release described the album this way: "Throughout Silver Tongue, Scott wrestles with the highs and lows of what 'being in love' might mean over heady guitars and swirling synths. Even when singing in more subdued tones, her voice is fervent, her lyrics stirring and unyielding as she draws from both the divine and the everyday. While potent vocal hooks punctuate songs, the knottiness lurking underneath reflects Scott's real-time processing of her emotions while making the record. This is immediate in album opener 'Good Scare,' which details the courage one finds when chasing the person of one's dreams."
