St. Vincent teased a few new tracks in mid-November and has now made it official: She’s releasing a self-titled album on February 24 in the UK and February 25 in the US via Loma Vista. The album will be her follow up to 2011’s Strange Mercy and her 2012 collaborative album with David Byrne.
In addition, she’s shared a track from the John Congleton-produced album titled “Birth In Reverse,” which opens with the excellent line “Oh, what an ordinary day. / Take out the garbage, masterbate.”
The track is available to stream below or you can head over to her site to download the track in exchange for your email address.
In a press release about the new album Annie Clark says, “I wanted to make a party record you could play at a funeral.” I don’t know if this song says that to me, but that may be the most promising description of an album I’ve heard in a while. Check out the tracklist and “Birth in Reverse” below.
