Images of the teaser posters have been cropping up across social media platforms. They feature a blond Annie Clark standing in a maroon suit next to what appears to be an album cover. “St. Vincent is back with a record of all-new songs,” a text panel reads. “Warm Wurlitzers and wit, glistening guitars and grit, with sleaze and style for days. Taking you from uptown to downtown with the artist who makes you expect the unexpected.” The poster claims that the record will be available May 14.
“Nothing to see here,” St. Vincent tweeted.
St. Vincent released her latest LP MASSEDUCTION in 2017. She has since shared a stripped-down edition of the record (2018’s MassEducation), and a 2019 remix version titled Nina Kraviz Presents Masseduction Rewired—a collaboration between Clark and Russian techno DJ Nina Kraviz. Late last year, Clark said that a new album was “locked and loaded” for 2021.
