St. Vincent to release new single "New York" next week?

22 June 2017, 12:35 | Written by Laurence Day

St. Vincent announced a massive tour earlier this week called Fear The Future - but was that just the tip of the iceberg?

It looks a lot like the singer/songwriter, real name Annie Clark, will drop a brand new track called "New York" on 30 June. As Exclaim note, UMG Polska (Universal Music Group Poland) let the news slip via a now-deleted tweet that read "Już 30 czerwca premiera nowego singla St. Vincent 'New York'!" (Google translates that to: "On June 30, the release of the new single, St. Vincent 'New York'!").

Clark's performed the track live before, while dressed as a toilet obviously. Check a clip below.

Clark's been hella busy since the end of her self-titled record campaign, contributing to the gigantic Bob's Burgers boxset, releasing a horror film, pursuing a career in food service, and designing a guitar... amongst other things.

In December last year Clark revealed some details about her the follow up to her eponymous 2014 album, including that it'd be out in spring (although this was clearly incorrect).

“I’ve been able to step back and reflect and not just be in the tour, record, tour, record cycle that I’ve been in for about 10 years," Clark told Guitar World. "I think it’ll be the deepest, boldest work I’ve ever done... I feel the playing field is really open for creative people to do whatever you want, and that risk will be rewarded - especially now that we have such high stakes from a political and geo-political standpoint. The personal is political and therefore the political can’t help but influence the art. And only music that has something pretty real to say is gonna cut the mustard.”

Apparently St. Vincent's new album will feature input from pop warlock Jack Antonoff - find out more in his New York Times profile piece.
