St. Vincent Unveils New Track 'Digital Witness' From Forthcoming Self-titled Album
St. Vincent - aka Annie Clark - has revealed 'Digital Witness' from her self-titled fourth album (due out 24th February)
The track tackles identity in the era of Instagram, with Clark singing, "If I can't show it / If you can't see me / What's the point of doing anything?" 'Digital Witness' follows the first sneak preview of the album, 'Birth In Reverse,' which garnered a Best New Music nod from Pitchfork.
'St. Vincent' showcases Clark at her most assured and gripping, as she meshes distorted, aggressive electric guitars and synthesizer arrangements on top of an infectious rhythm section and relentless percussion. The album follows her last solo release, 2011's 'Strange Mercy,' which was called "one of the year's best" by the New York Times and "something to behold" by Pitchfork, and her 2012 collaboration with David Byrne, 'Love This Giant,' another critical smash that was dubbed "marvellous" by the New Yorker and "magical" by NPR.
