St. Vincent Streams Self-Titled New Album, a ‘Party Record You Could Play at a Funeral’
Annie Clark's fourth solo album under the St. Vincent name arrives February 25
Annie Clark’s next album as St. Vincent isn’t due out until February 25 via Loma Vista, but now you can listen to St. Vincent in all its sly, digital-funk splendor. Clark recorded her fourth solo album (that’s not counting her 2012 collaborative full-length with David Byrne, Love This Giant) with producer John Congleton in Dallas, plus help from Dap-Kings drummer Homer Steinweiss and Midlake’s McKenzie Smith. “I knew the groove needed to be paramount,” the former SPIN cover star said last December in a statement. “I wanted to make a party record you could play at a funeral.” It’s the proper follow-up to 2011’s Strange Mercy; we’ve already heard “Digital Witness,” “Birth in Reverse,” and “Prince Johnny,” but now we get “Bring Me Your Loves,” among other guitar-frying highlights.
