St. Vincent, aka Annie Clark, will drop a new album this coming September that features production by the Grammy nominated john Congleton, who has worked with acts such as Modest Mouse, The Octopus Project and Erykah Badu.
Entitled Strange Mercy, Clark’s newest album will hit shelves September 12 in the UK and September 13 in the US via 4AD. It features 11 new tracks from Clark with help from Daniel Hart on violin, Beck collaborator Brian LeBarton on keyboards, Mackenzie Smith on drums and Grammy award winner Bobby Sparks on basically any quirky instrument you can think of (including but not limited to the Wurlitzer, Arp and clavinet).
Strange Mercy will serve as clark’s followup to 2009’s Actor. A recent press release stated that the upcoming release will feature Clark’s signature orchestration and vintage tone.
