Torres has released a new single, ‘Wake to flowers’, taken from her forthcoming record What an enormous room. It comes paired with a video by frequent collaborator Dani Okon, who helmed the visuals for earlier singles ‘I got the fear’ and ‘Collect’. Check it out below.
“I’m familiar with the disappointment that frequently follows hope,” Mackenzie Scott shared in a statement about the new song. “People are frighteningly resilient. We are regularly optimistic and regularly shattered by the want of something, maybe something that takes all our might and energy and then still doesn’t happen. But have you ever been anxious that things weren’t going to turn out the way you hoped, or maybe you weren’t very optimistic, and then you got everything you wanted? I feel like this happens a lot but I don’t hear it acknowledged very much. Everything I have now is something I once fought and longed for—this song is my way of keeping myself aware of that all the time.”
What an enormous room comes out January 26 through Merge.
