Annie Clark has shared a new song ‘Pills’ taken from her forthcoming St. Vincent album Masseduction.
The track, which was worked on alongside Jack Antonoff, includes guest vocals from Cara Delevingne and Jenny Lewis, saxophone from Kamasi Washington.
“I’ve always kept my writing close to the vest. And by that I mean I’m always gonna write about my life. Sometimes, in the past, I did that way more obliquely than now,” Clark said when speaking to The Guardian recently about her relationship with Delevingne. “But it’s almost like an involuntary reflex. I can’t help but be living and also taking notes on what’s going on, always trying to figure out how to put that into a song.
“And that does not mean there’s literal truth in every lyric on the way. Of course not. But I can only write about my life, and that – dating Cara – was a big part of my life. I wouldn’t take it off-limits, just because my songs might get extra scrutiny. People would read into them what they would, and you know what? Whatever they thought they found there would be absolutely right. And at the same time it would be absolutely wrong.”
