St. Vincent will release ‘Strange Mercy’ on on 9/13, her new album for 4AD who say: “The record’s 11 new tracks showcase Clark’s gift for fusing the cerebral and the visceral, her melodically elegant arrangements packing hefty emotional punches. Clark reunited with producer John Congleton and recorded the album in her hometown of Dallas, TX at Elmwood Studios.”
“Other musicians on the album include the Grammy Award winning Bobby Sparks on mini Moog, clavinet, Arp and Wurlitzer, Midlake’s MacKenzie Smith on drums, and Daniel Hart on violin. Also contributing were Beck keyboardist and musical director Brian LeBarton, Evan Smith on woodwinds and Phil Palazzolo.”
Annie Clark is also working with David Byrne on stuff. Asphalt Orchestra will perform some of it at this year’s Bang on a Can Orchestra. David Byrne is also working with other people on stuff.
