St. Vincent on Wednesday revealed details of her imminent comeback.
In a Facebook Live video, the 34-year-old thrasher announced that her new album, MASSEDUCTION, will drop on Oct. 13. She also shared the song “Los Ageless.” (She previously released “New York” off the collection.)
Born Annie Clark, the star broke out three years ago with her stellar, self-titled LP, which earned ravenous critical acclaim and landed on top of Entertainment Weekly’s Best Albums of 2014 list. According to a release, “themes of power and sex, imperiled relationships, and death slice through” her new effort.
St. Vincent described the forthcoming 13 tracks as very intimate in nature. “Every record I make has an archetype,” she said via the release. “Strange Mercy was Housewives on Pills. St. Vincent was Near-Future Cult Leader. MASSEDUCTION is different, it’s pretty first person. You can’t fact-check it, but if you want to know about my life, listen to this record.”
Like Lorde and Taylor Swift, St. Vincent has enlisted the production prowess of Jack Antonoff for her 2017 collection. The two recorded together at New York City’s fabled Electric Lady Studios as well as at Rough Consumer Studio in Brooklyn and Compound Fracture in Los Angeles.
Other notable guests include pianist and Sufjan Stevens cohort Thomas Bartlett, Kamasi Washington, Jenny Lewis, who contributes vocals, and Sounwave.
“Los Ageless” is streaming above. MASSEDUCTION is due for release Oct. 13 via Loma Vista Recordings. St. Vincent’s Fear the Future Tour will launch Oct. 7. The full track list and tour dates are below.
