St. Vincent (aka Annie Clark) is releasing her new album, MASSEDUCTION, this Friday (October 13) via Loma Vista. Now she has shared another song from the album, "Pills." It tackles our culture's over-reliance on medications. The song features vocals from Cara Delevingne and Jenny Lewis and saxophone from Kamasi Washington. Listen below, followed by her upcoming tour dates, including some newly announced 2018 dates.

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.

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).

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."

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.
