St. Vincent released her latest LP 'MASSEDUCTION' in 2017, also sharing a stripped-down edition of the record the following year.
New York musician St. Vincent has unveiled a cinematic teaser trailer for her forthcoming album Daddy’s Home, reportedly dropping on May 14 via Loma Vista.
The video clip and hotline 1-833-77-DADDY announced a new single titled ‘Pay Your Way In Pain’.
Real name Annie Clark – St. Vincent can be seen running through a decrepit apartment complex, chasing the ring of a vintage telephone.
At the end of the video, a phone number appears with the instructions “CALL NOW!” Clark dials the hotline, says “hello” twice, and a deep voice describes her return to music as in movie trailer style.
“She’s back,” the voice says, “in a new role like you’ve never seen here before. Featuring the new single, ‘Pay Your Way In Pain’.
“Nobody expected it, nobody believed it and nobody could stop it.”
The message ends with the voice saying “Daddy’s home”, which is assumed to be the title of Clark’s upcoming album. No release date for ‘Pay Your Way In Pain’ has been revealed yet.
Posters for a new St. Vincent album were spotted on the street last week, building up anticipation for the May release. It will be Clark's first since her 2019 collaboration with Russian DJ Nina Kraviz.
Nina Kraviz Presents Masseduction Rewired was a remix version of Clark's 2017 LP MASSEDUCTION.
Speaking about the new LP in a recent interview, Clark said, “I would say it’s the sound of being down and out Downtown in New York, 1973.
“In hindsight, I realised that Masseduction and the tour was so incredibly strict, whether it was the outfits I was wearing that literally constricted me, to the show being tight and the music being angular and rigid. When I wrapped that, I was like ‘oh, I just want things that are fluid and wiggly and I want this music to look like a Cassavetes film’.”
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."
