Teasers for St. Vincent's anticipated follow-up to 2017's MASSEDUCTION have begun popping up, and while officially Annie Clark has been mum on the subject, recently tweeting "Nothing to see here," she's now discussed the album, which is apparently called Daddy's Home and features production by Jack Antonoff, more in a new interview on Substack newsletter The New Cue. "I would say it’s the sound of being down and out Downtown in New York, 1973," she says. "Glamour that hasn’t slept for three days."
"In hindsight, I realized that the [last album, 2017’s] Masseduction and tour was so incredibly strict," she continues, "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. I wanted it to be warm tones and not really distorted, to tell these stories of flawed people being flawed and doing the best they can. Which is kind of what my life is."
