St. Vincent Teams Up with Dave Grohl, Cate Le Bon, and Josh Freese for “Psychotic” New Album


In a surprising turn of events, St. Vincent, the enigmatic musician known for pushing the boundaries of sound, has announced a star-studded collaboration for her upcoming album. Dave Grohl, Cate Le Bon, and Josh Freese have joined forces with the innovative artist to craft what promises to be a bold and intense musical journey.

In an exclusive interview with MOJO, St. Vincent, also known as Annie Clark, revealed details about her highly anticipated project. Produced by Clark herself, the album is set to explore new sonic territories, described by the artist as “post-plague pop.” Delving into themes of heaven and hell, the album reflects Clark’s introspective journey during solitary studio sessions, which she likens to a form of personal hell.

Describing the sound of the album, Clark stated, “It sounds urgent and psychotic, in equal parts.” With a focus on guitars and analog synthesizers reminiscent of the 70s and 80s, the album is poised to be darker and harsher than her previous work. Clark emphasizes that this album will be raw and unfiltered, offering listeners a visceral experience unlike anything she has created before.

The collaborative effort took place across multiple iconic studios, including Compound Fracture in Los Angeles, Electric Lady in New York, and Steve Albini’s Electrical Audio in Chicago. This cross-country journey underscores the magnitude of the project and the dedication of all involved to create something truly groundbreaking.

Despite the album’s intense nature, St. Vincent remains committed to sharing her music with the world. She has confirmed two live dates for the year, with one being a European exclusive performance at the Dutch Best Kept Secret 2024 festival, scheduled between June 7 and 9. This limited schedule only adds to the anticipation surrounding the release of her latest album.

St. Vincent’s previous album, “Daddy’s Home,” released in 2021, showcased her ability to reinvent herself with each new project. With the addition of musical luminaries like Dave Grohl, Cate Le Bon, and Josh Freese, her upcoming album is poised to push the boundaries of creativity even further, cementing her status as one of the most innovative artists of her generation. Fans eagerly await the release of what promises to be a thrilling and unforgettable musical experience.
