Annie Clark, a.k.a. St. Vincent, is slated to release her next record this fall—the first in over three years. In an interview with The New Yorker, Clark gets candid about her upcoming release and her monastic lifestyle that gave it light. According to The New Yorker, Clark immersed herself in her own life, choosing celibacy and sobriety, and vowing to only listen to her own music, “in order to keep her ears clear.”

“It’s all about sex and drugs and sadness,” she reveals. The final song, written on a bus voyage from Lithuania to Latvia, revolves around suicide. Beneath the surface appeal of her husky vocals lies a dark foundation which she will explore on this latest record.

Clark enlisted the help of Jack Antonoff, famed for his own music under the name Bleachers, as well as for his work with Taylor Swift and Lorde, leading many to speculate that Clark has her sights set on a pure pop sound. One track features vocals from her ex-girlfriend, Cara Delevingne, under the pseudonym Kid Monkey. Clark’s split with Delevingne served as a catalyst for new music, as their relationship soon became fodder for gossip sites. Through her songwriting, Clark regained the control she had lost following the success of St. Vincent.

Though her latest record does not yet have a release date, or a name for that matter, you can listen to "New York" below.
