St. Vincent (aka Annie Clark) has announced a new album, MassEducation, that is a stripped down version of her last album, 2017’s MASSEDUCTION, and has shared one of its tracks, a reworked version of “Savior.” MassEducation is due out soon, next Friday, October 12, via Loma Vista. Its title is amusing, as many mistakenly thought that was the title of MASSEDUCTION. The album was recorded in two days and just features Clark on vocals and Thomas Bartlett (aka Doveman) on piano. Check out the new version of “Savior” below, followed by the album’s tracklist, a handwritten note from Clark about the album, and her upcoming tour dates. Above is the album’s cover art.

In the handwritten note Clark describes the recording of the album as “two dear friends playing songs together with the kind of secret understanding one can only get through endless nights in New York City.”

Clark also wrote: “We neither rehearsed nor spoke about how to approach any song, but rather, played two to three live takes, picked the best one, and trusted in the feeling of the moment.”

MASSEDUCTION was released in October 2017 via Loma Vista. It was one of our Top 100 Albums of 2017. Back in June she shared “Fast Slow Disco,” a new, more dance floor ready version of the album’s delicate string backed track “Slow Disco.” Then last week she shared a third version of “Slow Disco” that took it in the other direction, to a more stripped down, piano-backed sound. It was fittingly titled “Slow Slow Disco” and that appears to be the version from MassEducation, although in the official tracklist its just titled “Slow Disco.”

“Fast Slow Disco” was one of our Songs of the Week, she performed it on Later… with Jools Holland, and also shared a video for the track.
