St Vincent

Manhattan-based singer-songwriter St Vincent has made her brand new song ‘Surgeon’ available for free download. A skewed fusion of old-world orchestral grandeur and angular electronic sounds, the track will appear on St Vincent’s forthcoming third LP ‘Strange Mercy’ upon its 12 Sep release date. ‘Surgeon’ could only be ‘unlocked’ if enough fans tweeted the hashtag #strangemercy on Twitter, which, judging by its present state of liberation, they did.

St Vincent, whose track ‘The Strangers’ was sampled by Kid Cudi on ‘MANIAC’, also worked with Bon Iver on ‘Roslyn’, a contribution to the second ‘Twilight Saga’ installment ‘New Moon’. So you see, her collaborative credentials are equally as imposing as her solo work. Sample a slice of the latter, along with some cute, cryptic, conceptual (and sometimes downright creepy) teaser clips, here on the official St Vincent site.
