St. Vincent's next album is inspired by "nihilistic" music of 1970s New York - WXPN | Vinyl At Heart

St. Vincent is set to release the follow-up to the 2017 album, Masseduction. In the last few days, pictures of posters promoting a new album have been circulating on the internet. Based on the advertisements, its assumed title is Daddy’s Home, though the title and the album itself haven’t been officially announced. The posters also seem to indicate a release date of May 14.

Annie Clarke, the mastermind behind St. Vincent, had already confirmed that a new project was on its way, so at the very least the album will be out sometime this year.

Clark’s recent interview with The New Cue reveals some information about what the album will be like. According to Clark, the album will be fairly different from Masseduction.

In hindsight, I realized that the [last album, 2017’s] Masseduction and tour was so incredibly strict, 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.

She also explained that the album will be inspired by music of the 1970s, but particularly “the sort of gritty, raw, wiggly nihilistic” music that was being created by some artists in New York from 1971 to 1976.

As of now, no firm details about the album have been released. In the meantime, you can listen to Masseduction below.
