St. Vincent – a.k.a. Annie Clark – has announced her new album, Masseduction, will be released October 13, 2017 on Loma Vista Recordings. Themes of power and sex, imperiled relationships, and death slice through the album, Clark’s first since her 2014 breakout St. Vincent.
As St. Vincent is available in hi-res at 96/24, we here at HRAC expect Masseduction to follow suit.
The 13 tracks on Masseduction swirl with guitar and piano, synths and strings, and drum beats that punch with purpose. The album was co-produced by St. Vincent and Jack Antonoff, and recorded at Electric Lady Studios in Manhattan, with additional recording at Rough Consumer Studio in Brooklyn, and Compound Fracture in Los Angeles.
“Every record I make has an archetype,” says Clark. “Strange Mercy was Housewives on Pills. St. Vincent was Near-Future Cult Leader. Masseduction is different; it’s pretty first person. You can’t fact-check it, but if you want to know about my life, listen to this record.”
Clark has also released a new song from the album, “Los Ageless,” which you access via any of the following links:
Last week, Clark released the first video from Masseduction, deemed “a visual feast” by Vogue. Watch “New York” here: http://found.ee/StVincent_NewYorkYT-i
Masseduction is the culmination of years of writing, with songs crafted from voice memos, text messages, and snippets of melodies that came to Clark while traveling the globe. Special guests on the album include Thomas Bartlett on piano, Kamasi Washington on saxophone, Jenny Lewis on vocals, and beat production from Sounwave. Greg Leisz and Rich Hinman add pedal steel, and Tuck and Patti Andress contribute guitar and vocals respectively on select tracks.
As previously announced, St. Vincent’s “Fear The Future Tour” will launch October 7, with a special performance to take place on the Paramount Pictures Studio “New York Street” set as part of the Red Bull Music Academy Festival. A full list of tour dates follow below.
St. Vincent’s 2014 self-titled album was her best-reviewed and best-selling to date, topping many year-end lists and culminating in her first Grammy nomination and win for Best Alternative Music Album in 2015. Shortly after the album’s release, Clark performed with a reformed Nirvana at the 2014 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, and on the 2014 season finale of Saturday Night Live. In 2015, Clark won the ASCAP Vanguard Award, and she was 2017’s Record Store Day Ambassador.
