St. Vincent, aka Annie Clark, has shared a few cover songs throughout coronavirus lockdown, including takes on Tool and two Led Zeppelin songs, "Stairway to Heaven" and "Dancing Days," but that's not all she's been up to. In a new interview with the Los Angeles Times, she reveals she's been working on a new podcast, called "St. Vincent: Words + Music." It premieres on Monday (8/31) on Audible, and LA Times describes it as "a 90-minute first-person deep dive into her life and music." It also includes reworked versions of some of her songs, including "Marry Me," from her 2007 album of the same name. According to La Times, the new rendition "highlights dizzying string arrangements absent from the original version."
"I’m obsessed with podcasts and audiobooks," Annie told LA Times. "I probably listen to more audiobooks than I do music. I mean, I certainly listen to music — for enjoyment, for research, for just making sure I know what is happening. Luckily, maybe because I’m a musician, I can retain a lot of information that comes through on the auditory side. I mean, I’ve really been brushing up on my Stalin."
