St. Vincent has announced her grand return, with her sixth record Daddy's Home set to be released this May! The announcement is accompanied by the release of the albums lead single, Pay Your Way In Pain.
The track brings all the funk, with the singers vocals taking centre stage, riffing off against her signature Ernie Ball Music Man guitar. The retro-groove track is an introduction to the 70's inspired sonics of the record, which was produced by producer extraordinaire Jack Antonoff, who worked with the musician on her last record, MASSEDUCTION. The release is accompanied by a striking visual, setting the musician in front of a greenscreen within a studio whilst nostaglic visuals surround her as the clip progresses.
Speaking of the record, St. Vincent shares: "Daddy's Home collects stories of being down and out in downtown NYC. Last night's heels on the morning train. Glamour that's been up for three days straight.”
The musical project of Annie Clark, the musician made her recorded debut as St. Vincent in 2007 with made her recorded debut as St. Vincent in 2007 with Marry Me. Her subsequent albums would grow in stature and complexity, including Actor (2009), Strange Mercy (2011), and the self-titled fourth album that won the 2014 GRAMMY for Best Alternative Album, making her only the second female artist ever to win in that category. In addition to these solo works, St. Vincent plays nice with others: Her collaborations have included an album with David Byrne (2012’s Love This Giant), a performance as singer and lead guitarist of Nirvana at the band’s 2014 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction, and a 2019 GRAMMY Awards duet with Dua Lipa.
