'Nowhere Inn', St Vincent's film with Carrie Brownstein, premiered at Sundance festival earlier this year.
Manhattan-based alt-rock artist St Vincent (real name Annie Clark) has confirmed that a new album is on the way for 2021, following 2017's MASSEDUCTION.
“The rumours are true. New record “locked and loaded” for 2021,” Clark wrote in a tweet. “Can’t wait for you to hear it.”
The singer-songwriter, formerly a member of Polyphonic Spree, spoke more about the followup to 2017’s MASSEDUCTION in an interview with MOJO.
Describing the record as a “tectonic shift,” Clark explained, “I felt I had gone as far as I could possibly go with angularity. I was interested in going back to the music I’ve listened to more than any other—Stevie Wonder records from the early ’70s, Sly and the Family Stone. I studied at the feet of those masters."
St Vincent also said the album has “the colour palette of the world of Taxi Driver” and “Gena Rowlands in a Cassavetes film.”
“I just wanted to capture the colours, the film stock, and tell these stories of being down and out, down on your luck,” she said.
Clark has shared two reworked versions of her most recent album, MassEducation and Nina Kraviz Presents Masseduction Rewired.
