All week, people have been adding the hash tag #strangemercy to their Tweets, in an effort to get St. Vincent to let loose with a new track. She finally did this morning, releasing the airy, delicate “Surgeon” on her website. You can stream/download it here. It’s clear that St. Vincent are going to be sticking with the experimental, regal pop that made her last two albums smashes. That is until that Billy Ocean-esque video game breakdown at the end. Where the hell did that come from?
Strange Mercy is due out on Sept. 13.
