St. Vincent (aka Annie Clark) released her new album, MASSEDUCTION, last Friday via Loma Vista. Today she was the musical guest on Annie Mac's BBC Radio 1 show. She was interviewed by Mac, performed MASSEDUCTION tracks "Los Ageless" and "New York," and also covered The Clash's "London Calling," backed only by an acoustic guitar. Listen to the whole thing below, but skip to the 18:10 part to hear "London Calling."

St. Vincent previously shared MASSEDUCTION track "New York" (it was our #1 Song of the Week), as well as a colorful video for the song. She also shared another song from it, "Los Ageless" (which was also our #1 Song of the Week), as well as a vibrant video for "Los Ageless" in which Clark got plastic surgery. She also stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to perform "New York" on the broadcast show and "Los Ageless" as a web-exclusive. Then she shared the song "Pills," which tackles our culture's over-reliance on medications and features vocals from Cara Delevingne and Jenny Lewis and saxophone from Kamasi Washington.

St. Vincent also stopped by the BBC music show Later... with Jools Holland to perform "New York" clad in a leopard print body suit and accompanied only by a pianist wearing a shiny red Mexican wrestler mask (and also covered Patsy Cline's "Crazy"). We also shared a Japanese bonus track, "政権腐敗," which is pronounced "seiken fuhai" and translates to "Power Corrupts."

Clark co-produced the album with Jack Antonoff, which was mainly recorded at Electric Lady Studios in Manhattan, with additional recording at Rough Consumer Studio in Brooklyn and Compound Fracture in Los Angeles. The album was announced via a slightly strange and awkward Facebook live press conference (she revealed that she secretly hates musicals).
