Annie Clark has announced her forthcoming sixth album as St. Vincent, Daddy’s Home, which is set for release on May 14th via Loma Vista Recordings. As part of the announcement, she’s made her return with a video for her new single, “Pay Your Way In Pain.”
The new track is a unique form of a sort of sweaty funk, as Clark weaves between crooning and shredding vocal lines. While calling upon a sort of ’70s stomp rock, “Pay Your Way In Pain” sees St. Vincent making familiar sounds feel new and revolutionary.
The accompanying Bill Benz-directed video serves as an opener to the visual world of Daddy’s Home, as it sees Clark throwing herself into a sort of retro, trippy network television variety hour. Essentially, throughout the clip, Clark performs the track with some perfectly peculiar dance moves in a vintage green pantsuit.
Watch the video for “Pay Your Way In Pain” below.
“And your wig, blonde, rolls home waving from the latest uptown train,” St. Vincent explains of the album. “I never wanna leave your perfect candy dream. So candy darling I brought bodega roses for your feet and candy my sweet I hope you will be coming home to me.”
