Annie Clarke is back with another taster of her new album
St. Vincent has released 'Down', her third single off of her upcoming album Daddy's Home.
The video features the singer pacing frantically through an empty apartment complex looking frantically for scattered electronics.
Vincent, (real name Annie Clarke) tears through the rooms of the building until finally coming across a tape recording. She then plays it through a telephone.
The video, directed by Bill Benz and produced by Wes Hager, is somewhat of a sequel to the teaser video posted before the album's announcement.
In keeping with the retro theme of the songs and videos released so far for the album, the piece features many 70's era editing touches, such as freeze frames.
The track playing throughout is a far more upbeat number than the prior two singles, 'Pay Your Way in Pain' and 'The Melting of the Sun'.
It features evocative lyrics such as "Go face your demons, check into treatment, go flee the country, go blame your daddy, just get far away from me".
St. Vincent spoke to Hot Press for its upcoming special issue, speaking about how her father's release from prison inspired her new album.
You can pre-order the new issue featuring a special flip-cover about Bob Dylan's 80 Birthday here:
Daddy's Home will be released this Friday, May 14, on Loma Vista Recordings. It will be Clarke's follow-up to 2017's Massseduction.
St. Vincent also recently appeared on the remix album McCartney III: Reimagined, released digitally by Paul McCartney in April of this year.
McCartney curated the release, featuring contemporary artists such as Beck, Phoebe Bridgers and Anderson .Paak covering and remixing tracks off of his 18th solo album, McCartney III.
Clarke featured on the song 'Women and Wives', providing a remix and backing vocals to the previously piano-based song.
The former Beatle praised her contribution saying in an Instagram Live Video with Clarke, "I love your version of ('Women and Wives'), because it’s radically different from what I did, the whole beat of it."
