Back in 2016, Snail Mail released her debut project, the Habit EP. Since that’s effort’s release, Snail Mail has gone on to drop the critically-acclaimed 2018 album Lush and become one of indie music’s most talked-about new stars. Now, revisiting her first project as Snail Mail, Lindsey Jordan — the multi-talented musician behind Snail Mail — is serving up a special reissue of the Habit EP.
Made up of seven tracks, the 2019 reissue of Habit now contains a cover of Courtney Love’s 1990 Uncrushworthy cut “The 2nd Most Beautiful Girl in the World,” and features new artwork as well. Snail Mail’s latest project is also being shared as a digital release through Matador, with physical copies scheduled for an August 30 delivery.
“When I wrote Habit, I was definitely not expressing anything—I was really shy. Now, I feel like I’m much more of a real person in every way,” Snail Mail’s Lindsey Jordan previously explained to Interview magazine, sharing some insight into Habit‘s back-story. “I’ve definitely gone through a lot since then. Even just the whole Snail Mail process — it’s really shaped me as a person. Being in a band, there’s a lot of weird shit you have to go through — lot of hoops you have to jump through … Habit, for me, I wrote it almost hastily, and I honestly didn’t think anyone would really hear it. I wrote the songs about things that were so personal that I actually almost hoped nobody would. I was like, ‘Uh oh, this girl is going to know it’s about her. This is deep, top secret.’”
