NEW MUSIC: TORRES - Hug From a Dinosaur

16 Jun 2021

Torres shares a taste of her forthcoming new album

TORRES (moniker of Mackenzie Scott) releases a new single/video, “Hug From a Dinosaur,” which appears on Thirstier, her most exuberant and daring record to date, out July 30th on Merge Records. Like lead single “Don’t Go Puttin Wishes in My Head,” “Hug From a Dinosaur” has a massive sound as Scott’s mighty voice sings: “Clock is sinking into quicksand disappearing fast // No bother, where we’re headed we won’t need that // What comprises all this joy I feel and where was it before? // Ancient and eternal and surreal as a hug from a dinosaur.” The accompanying video, edited by Areeb Tariq, is a neon-drenched blend of trippy visuals and clips of Scott dancing and singing.

Scott comments, “The title emerged from a dream I had. The song’s theme is that truth is eternal, and it’s also about never stopping. To bring it back down to earth, the song’s also about being ready to drop everything to do something essential for someone you love. In this instance, it’s bringing my girlfriend lunch so she can keep painting.”

Catch TORRES at Bush Hall on 15 March 2022. Tickets for the show are on sale now!
