TORRES — the recording project of New York artist Mackenzie Scott — announces her new album, What an enormous room, out January 26, 2024, on Merge.

Shortly before that release, TORRES performs at The Atlantis in DC for a show on Wednesday, Jan. 24!

What an enormous room was recorded at Durham, North Carolina’s Stadium Heights Sound last fall and follows the release of Scott’s celebrated 2021 album, Thirstier. “Collect” introduces the new chapter with sharp production, blown-out synths, and a confrontation: “I know what you expect // You expect to be first // You claim what you didn’t earn // Is that what you deserve?” Scott exudes confidence as she barrels down a line of questioning: “Did I hit a nerve?”

Scott adds, “This song is about justice being served. The rage song I’ve been trying to write for years!” These emotions are on full display in the song’s accompanying video, directed by Dani Okon.

Watch the official music video for “Collect” by TORRES on YouTube:

TORRES’ career spans a decade, six studio albums, countless one-offs, tours, articles, and conversations, each marked by a dedication to creation that treats the ongoing act itself with as much preciousness as what is left in the record. What an enormous room was produced by Scott and Sarah Jaffe, with engineering by Ryan Pickett, mixing done overseas in Bristol by TJ Allen, and mastering by indie stalwart Heba Kadry. Each of the album’s ten songs was written by Scott, who plays guitar, bass, synths, organ, piano, and programmed drums, with Jaffe and Allen also contributing to various instrumentation.
