Snail Mail – “Ben Franklin”

Snail Mail released her triumphant new single “Valentine” just a few short weeks ago — it landed on top of our best songs of the week list — and there’s just a few long weeks to go until Valentine, the album, is released in full. Today, Lindsey Jordan is sharing Valentine‘s second single, “Ben Franklin,” which boasts some crackling synths and a cheekily melodramatic hook: “Sucker for the pain huh, honey?/ But you said you’d die!/ You wanna leave a stain forever/ But you said you would’ve died for me.”
