St. Vincent (aka Annie Clark) has announced her new album, MASSEDUCTION, and shared another song from it, "Los Ageless." MASSEDUCTION is pronounced as "mass-seduction" not "mass-education" and is due out October 13 via Loma Vista. Below is "Los Ageless," followed by the album's tracklist and cover art, as well as her upcoming tour dates. She also had a slightly strange and awkward Facebook live press conference this morning and the video of that is below (she reveals that she secretly hates musicials).

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.

Clark says this album is more autobiographical than her previous three albums. "Every record I make has an archetype," she says in a press release. "Strange Mercy was Housewives on Pills. St. Vincent was Near-Future Cult Leader. MASSEDUCTION is different, it's pretty first person. You can't fact-check it, but if you want to know about my life, listen to this record." In the press conference Clark said "this record's about love."

St. Vincent previously shared MASSEDUCTION track "New York," as well as a colorful video for the song. It was our Song of the Week.

Clark previously announced a fall tour she's dubbing the "Fear the Future Tour" and also shared a funny announcement video for the tour.

It was also recently announced that Clark has been tapped to direct her first feature film. It will be a new adaptation of Oscar Wilde's 1890 novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray, but with a twist: the title character will now be female, rather than male.

The American jewelry company Tiffany & Co. recently launched their fall 2017 campaign and it starred St. Vincent, among others. Yesterday Tiffany released a new ad that features St. Vincent covering The Beatles' "All You Need Is Love." Clark doesn't show up in the ad, which features black & white images of models Vittoria Ceretti, Julia Nobis, Anchok Majak, and Georgina Grenville mouthing the words to the song.

So excited for her new album! Her most recent single “New York” fits perfectly right in the middle of this indie playlist http://www.digster.fm/playlist/toe-tappin-indie
