In her new video for the cryptically titled “Too Big for the Glory Hole,” Mackenzie Scott of TORRES captures domestic solitude in her now-iconic cowboy boots. But Scott and the world seem light-years away from the “Dressing America” video, set in that same home. The sparse keys and solemn delivery of lines such as “Must be that God can take a joke / To make the one I like best the one I fear most” push “Too Big for the Glory Hole” into near-hymn territory. I wrote this song when I was living alone in the East Village, before I moved in with my girlfriend. I was lonely. It was recorded in Brooklyn last fall, but Jenna made this accompanying video on her iPhone in quarantine.

The song, partially influenced by Florine Stettheimer’s painting The Cathedrals of Wall Street, was recorded during the Silver Tongue sessions and featured on a free 7-inch included with the album’s Peak Vinyl edition. It’s available today on all streaming platforms.


Released June 3rd, 2020, The single, “Too Big for the Glory Hole,” is out now on Merge Records.
