Singer/songwriter Mackenzie Scott, better known as Torres, has announced her follow-up to 2013’s self-titled debut release. The nine-track offering is titled  “Sprinter”, and it’ll be out May 5th in the U.S. and May 18 in the UK/Europe via Partisan Recordings. Listen to the album opener “Strange Hellos” . It was produced by Rob Ellis (known for his work with PJ Harvey), with a backing band featuring Portishead guitarist Adrian Utley and PJ Harvey’s bassist Ian Oliver.

Here’s what Scott had to say about the album’s lyrical concerns, which reflect the experiences of her family. (Both Scott and her mother were adopted):

Whether it be abandonment, or fear of rejection, or perhaps inability to connect with people, comes down to that fear of isolation, of not being good enough. Those are themes that have cropped up in my personal life, in my writing, and my mom can definitely understand that herself.

This spring, Torres will be heading out on tour to celebrate the release of the new LP.

Tipped by Sharon Van Etten: “I got to see Torres’ first show in New York at Cake Shop a while back. She was so nervous – she shyly said where she was from and that it was her first show, but as soon as she started playing you could feel that nervousness go away. It reminded me of when I first came to New York. She’s been kicking ass recently though, and I’m really excited for her.”
