Annie Clark otherwise known as St. Vincent will release Strange Mercy, the follow up to her 2009 sophomore album, Actor, on the 13th of September.
Clark will be joined by a host of other musicians. Included among them are Beck keyboardist and musical director Brian LeBarton, Grammy Award winning musician Bobby Sparks on mini Moog, clavinet, Arp and Wurlitzer, Midlake’s MacKenzie Smith on drums, Daniel Hart on violin, Evan Smith on woodwinds and Phil Palazzolo.
Since the release of her 2009 album Actor, Clark has collaborated with some of the biggest names in indie music. She recorded with Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon for the Twilight soundtrack, had her song The Strangers sampled by Kid Cudi (who she later performed with), and has been working with David Byrne on a forthcoming project. More recently, just last month she blew away a sold-out New York crowd at Michael Azerrad’s Our Concert Could Be Your Life, with a performance of Big Black’s Kerosene.
