St. Vincent – aka Annie Clark – hasn’t released an album since 2017’s MASSEDUCTION, but now she’s finally given details about the highly anticipated follow-up.
In an interview with MOJO Magazine, and obtained via Stereogum, Clark revealed that her new album is out next year, and later confirmed that news in a tweet.
“The rumors are true,” she wrote.
“New record “locked and loaded” for 2021. Can’t wait for you to hear it.”

When describing the album, she pointed to classic 70s cinema, such as Taxi Driver or roles Gena Rowlands played while collaborating with her director husband, John Cassavetes.
“I just wanted to capture the colors, the film stock, and tell these stories of being down and out, down on your luck,” she said.
She also explained how she looked to 70s music as well.
“I felt I had gone as far as I could possibly go with angularity. I was interested in going back to the music I’ve listened to more than any other—Stevie Wonder records from the early ’70s, Sly and the Family Stone. I studied at the feet of those masters.”
