In the cover story for the February 2017 issue of Guitar World, St. Vincent (aka Annie Clark) teased an the adhere to-up to her “mundane futurism”-y (per Flavorwire’s own Tom Hawking) self-titled 2014 album. The article reveals will be released in Spring, 2017 — though no date’s been announced but, nor has a title. Even so, what is revealed is that Clark really likes this factor. Which, effectively, any artist starting to market their next perform should at least pretend to but the way she talks about her writing approach right here makes it look like for her, it stands out from the rest.
Describing it as a “real sea change” to her sound — which, it should be noted, definitely changed from the string-heavy floridness of Actor to the dead-eyed electricity of St. Vincent — she mentioned she’s been capable to “step back and reflect and not just be in the tour, record, tour, record cycle that I’ve been in for about ten years.” She continues:
I believe it’ll be the deepest, boldest function I’ve ever done. I really feel the playing field is really open for inventive people to do what ever you want, and that risk will be rewarded—especially now that we have such high stakes from a political and geo-political standpoint. The private is political and for that reason the political cannot assist but influence the art. And only music that has one thing pretty genuine to say is gonna reduce the mustard.
Guitar World has posted further bits of the interview on-line, but the full function seems in the print version.
