St. Vincent, the name the magical musical genius Annie Clark performs under, released a stellar fifth album last year with MASSEDUCTION. The album is filled with eclectic noises ranging from glam-rock to synth tunes to delicate ballads. Clark basically threw everything out there and made it work as a cohesive whole album that is spilling over with brilliant ideas and melodies.
Reportedly, though, she also recorded an all-acoustic version of the same album. So far, no concrete news of whether or not that is coming anytime soon exists. But, for the past few months Clark has been treating us to fantastic acoustic versions of album tracks. This week is no exception.
Clark headed to the Spotify studios to do one of their Spotify Singles Series things, wherein a musician/band does a song of their own plus a cover. For St. Vincent’s edition, we get an acoustic version of album single “Los Ageless” plus a fantastic cover of Rihanna’s “Consideration.” Stream both songs right here.
