St. Vincent has released two singles thus far from forthcoming album Daddy’s Home, and over the weekend she performed both while appearing at the musical guest on the latest episode of Saturday Night Live.
Daddy’s Home is set to arrive Friday, 14th May via Loma Vista. Clark’s sixth studio album under her St. Vincent moniker, it’ll follow up 2017’s Masseduction and its piano-oriented companion MassEducation.
“Daddy’s Home collects stories of being down and out in downtown NYC,” Clark said upon announcing the new album. “Last night’s heels on the morning train. Glamour that’s been up for three days straight.”
Co-produced by Clark herself along with Jack Antonoff, Daddy’s Home sees the songwriter drawing on the sounds of the early 1970s for sonic inspiration, and was thematically influenced by the release of Clark’s father from prison in 2019 after nine years of incarceration.
