Free Download: St. Vincent's Does Disney

St. Vincent
Larry Fitzmaurice

As we reported earlier, ex-Polyphonic Spree/Sufjan Stevens rocker Annie Clark was inspired by vintage films and their soundtracks for Actor, her upcoming sophomore album as St. Vincent. And sure enough, its first leak, "The Strangers," is a virtual score for an indie remake of a Disney classic.

Angelic vocal harmonies and bubbling melodies open the tune (think the inviting forest from Snow White) until a sinister guitar riff comes storming in like the fire-spitting dragon from Sleeping Beauty. And like a Disney flick, the tune has a happy ending, with a soothing mix of accordion, acoustic guitar, and skyward vocals. However, Michey Mouse probably won't approve of Clark's lyrics about "painting the black hole blacker," quarreling with a lover, and keeping secrets in a relationship. Oh, well.

Hear the song below. And head to St. Vincent's official website to download the track for free.
