TORRES, the moniker of New York artist Mackenzie Scott, announces her new album What an enormous room, out January 26, 2024, and available for pre-order now on CD, LP, and blue jay & white Peak Vinyl. In addition to sharing the Dani Okon–directed video for lead single “Collect,” Scott unveils a 2024 North American and European tour, with more dates still to come. 

To quote Julien Baker, who penned the album’s bio, directly: “What I can say about TORRES is I think the music comes from a convicted place. […] And I think it’s just incredibly good music to listen to.

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!

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.
