Masseduction was co-produced by St. Vincent - aka Annie Clark - and Jack Antonoff at NYC's Electric Lady Studios. Additional recording took place in Rough Consumer (Brooklyn) and Compound Fracture (LA), with guest contributions from Thomas Bartlett, Kamasi Washington, Jenny Lewis, Sounwave, Greg Leisz, Rich Hinman, and Tuck and Patti Andress.
"Every record I make has an archetype," says Clark of the LP. "Strange Mercy was housewives on pills. St. Vincent was near-future cult leader. Masseduction is different; it's pretty first person. You can't fact-check it, but if you want to know about my life, listen to this record.”
