Well, the wait is over: we’ve got new music from St. Vincent!
A couple of years on from her ace self-titled album, we’ve got a brand new track from Annie Clark in the shape of ‘New York’. For anyone expecting her usual guitar squalls, prepare to be in for a bit of a surprise. It’s led mostly by piano, with the occasionally danceable, pulsating beat lying embedded deep within the mix, sometimes punctuated by strings and choir-like harmonies. Basically, it’s a ballad. Albeit a ballad with the refrain of “you’re the only motherfucker in the city who can handle me”.
Recently, Annie also announced details of a huge ‘Fear The Future Tour’, where she’ll be heading off around the world. The tour kicks off with a couple of dates in the UK, where she’ll be playing in London and Manchester.
