St. Vincent is back with new single "The Melting Of The Sun", which lands as a second preview of her forthcoming album Daddy's Home.

"The Melting Of The Sun" follows last month's lead single "Pay Your Way In Pain", and is accompanied by a lyric video animated by Chris McD that emphasises the psychedelic track.

St. Vincent's new outing landed alongside news that she will return to Saturday Night Live tomorrow (3 April) for a second time, this time joining host Daniel Kaluuya.

Daddy's Home will follow St. Vincent's 2017 album MASSEDUCTION, and features production from St. Vincent, real name Annie Clark, and Jack Antonoff.

In February St. Vincent, real name Annie Clark, discussed her forthcoming album in the first edition of weekly newsletter The New Cue. Clark described the album as "the sound of being down and out Downtown in New York, 1973. Glamour that hasn’t slept for three days."

When discussing the inspiration for the album, Clark added, "So the nuts and bolts of it is like, my dad got out of prison in 2019. He'd been in for 10 years. My first song for it was a story about when I used to go visit him and I would sign crumpled-up Target receipts somebody had left in the visitation room. And, of course, it's incredibly sad, but it’s also incredibly absurd so the whole family has found a way to laugh about it. So that was the impetus, I guess."

"The Melting Of The Sun" is out now. St. Vincent's Daddy's Home album will be released 14 May via Loma Vista Recordings, and is available to pre-order now.
