St. Vincent Unveils First Track ‘New York’ from Upcoming Album

St. Vincent and  BBC Radio 6 Music have both been responsible for making a lot of my own personal, musical dreams come true over the years. On June 29th at midnight UK time, St. Vincent’s newest track from what appears to be her next, as of yet untitled (but we’re gonna guess that it’s the same as that of her upcoming tour, just for fun) fifth album was played in full for the first time. At least in its full, studio-recorded form and not onstage, while its singer wore a toilet costume from her 2016 directorial debut ‘The Birthday Party’ (a short film that’s part of the female-directed horror anthology, XX), that is. (There are receipts and trust me, we’re not complaining about either).

While it may not be a reflection of the entire album, ‘New York’ is a track full of the melancholy of loss and places we all have that once belonged to an Us, and now a Neither, and it’s a track that distances itself from the ‘Huey Newton’ and ‘Digital Witness’ approach that a lot of her last, award-winning, self-titled album took.

St. Vincent’s ‘New York’ rather follows the approach she took with tracks like ‘I Prefer Your Love’ and Prince Johnny, the former being one of the most autobiographical songs Annie Clark (St. Vincent) had written up to that point. With lyrics like ‘You’re the only mother fucker in the city who can handle me/forgive me’ and ‘for you, darling, I’d do it all again’, St. Vincent’s proclamation that the upcoming album — rumored to involve BLEACHERS’ and Mr. Lena Dunham, Jack Antonoff — includes some of the most personal work she’s done so far, is entirely believable, and this mother fucker, cannot wait to hear more.

Listen to the song here:
