St. Vincent, AKA Annie Clark, has announced a brand new album is on the way after a few days of teasing. It’s been announced with a brand new single, ‘Pay Your Way In Pain’. The new record, Daddy’s Home, is the sixth album from the artist who looks set for another barnstormer.
One of the more musically gifted artists around St. Vincent has always been a dab hand at merging sounds in the most unusual ways and, judging by the latest single, this album will be another masterclass in musicianship. Listen to the brand new track, below.
Landing somewhere near to a hyper-polished Peaches, St. Vincent has always benefitted from her singular standpoint and ‘Pay Your Way In Pain’ is yet another unique sound from the singer-songwriter — one which she has perfected over the years. It reeks of yesterday’s perfume and whiskey and feels as close to a night out on the tiles as we’ve got to in the last 12 months.
The new album will arrive May 14 and will once again re-position St. Vincent as the queen of the scene. In truth, there’s nobody that’s able to match up to her forward-thinking artistic output; something perfectly encapsulated on the variety show rabbit hole we see her struggling against in the visuals for the new single.
“Daddy’s Home collects stories of being down and out in downtown NYC,” Clark said of the album. “Last night’s heels on the morning train. Glamour that’s been up for three days straight.”
With production help from Jack Antonoff, this album is likely to pick up where St. Vincent left off in 2019’s MASSEDUCTION.
Listen to ‘Pay Your Way In Pain’ below and try to resist the urge to get your glad rags on and head to the disco.
