St. Vincent Shares Melancholy Ballad “New York”, Her First Song in Two Years

It’s been three years since Annie Clark, aka St. Vincent, has released a full-length album, and two years since we’ve heard any new music from the songwriter – her last project was a song recorded for the HBO show Girls titled “Teenage Talk”. This new single, called “New York”, finds Clark in a melancholy state of mind as she laments the loss of “the only motherfucker in the city who can stand me”. It’s a beautiful ode to the passage of time and the way a single person we care about deeply can affect the way we remember a certain time and place, especially after they’re gone. A hushed piano and rising strings perfectly accompany the bittersweet lyrics. Give the song a listen below.
