St. Vincent has teamed up with Yoshiki for a new rendition of her renowned track, “New York.”
The new reimagining takes the MASSEDUCTION track and adds a classical twist, with Yoshiki adding in some grand string arrangements and gorgeous piano lines. St. Vincent even changes the lyric “only motherfucker in the city” to “only other sucker in the city.”
St. Vincent compares the new version of the track to “the way time or distance transform longtime friends or relationships: the original is still recognizable, but subtly and significantly altered.”
