Torres reveals LP details & title track, playing NPR ‘Greatest Albums by Women’ show

Posted on

Torres Three Futures

Torres recently signed to 4AD and released the excellent new single “Skim.” Now she has revealed that “Skim” will appear on her next album, Three Futures, which comes out on September 29 via her new label home. The album was produced by PJ Harvey collaborator Rob Ellis, who also produced Torres’ 2015 album Sprinter. Along with the album announcement, Torres released the title track and its Ashley Connor-directed video. Like “Skim,” “Three Futures” is defiant new ground for Torres and the video is as powerful and vivid as the lyrics (and gets slightly NSFW at the end). Watch/listen below.

As mentioned, Torres will be on tour around the album’s release, including a Brooklyn show on October 27 at Music Hall of Williamsburg (tickets).

Before the tour starts, Torres will play an NPR Music/Lincoln Center Out of Doors show on July 26 at Damrosch Park Bandshell. Torres is among a lineup of women that includes Ronnie Spector, Nona Hendryx, Alynda Segarra (Hurray for the Riff Raff), Lizzo and Gaby Moreno, and Rickie Lee Jones will headline and play her 1981 album Pirates in full. The show is in celebration of “NPR Music’s upcoming list of the 150 greatest albums created by women during the ‘classic album era’ (defined roughly as 1964 to the present),” and the performers will be playing songs from those albums. Like all Lincoln Center Out of Doors shows, it’s free. NPR also has a related panel discussion at David Rubenstein Atrium a day earlier (7/25).

Updated Torres dates are listed, with the new video and album tracklist, below.
