Hear St. Vincent’s New Song ‘Birth in Reverse’

This morning (Dec. 9), St. Vincent surprised fans with the announcement of her new solo record, the follow-up to 2011’s Strange Mercy and her first release since teaming up with David Byrne for 2012’s Love This Giant. 

St. Vincent’s (aka Annie Clark) fourth self-titled LP, due out February 25, was recorded in Dallas with Dap-Kings drummer Homer Steinweiss and Midlake percussionist McKenzie Smith.

“I knew the groove needed to be paramount,” Clark explained in a release. “I wanted to make a party record you could play at a funeral.”

After releasing her previous albums on 4AD, the 11-song record is her first on Loma Vista, home to Rhye, Ghost, PAPA, Little Dragon and Cut Copy.

To help tide fans over while they wait for next year’s release date, Clark released the self-titled album’s first track “Birth in Reverse,” a groove-heavy track that has Clark hiccuping the line, “Laugh all you want, I want more.”

Check out the full tracklist for St. Vincent below.

01. Rattlesnake
02. Birth in Reverse
