St Vincent has announced that she will release her fifth album, titled ‘Masseduction’, in October. So that’s improved 2017 a great deal. So long as we don’t all get nuked to oblivion before it comes out. That would be really disappointing.

The musician announced the album in a mock press conference on Facebook, giving a guide to not getting the title wrong in the process.

“It’s ‘mass seduction’, not ‘mass education’, which is a noble and worthy cause for sure, but it’s not the title of my record”, she said. “And you’re probably wondering, and the answer is yes, I did toy with calling the record ‘Ass Education’. But it seemed to me that that was much better suited to be the title of the sequel. We’ve gotta build up to something, you know”.

Watch the whole thing here:

As well as announcing the album, she also put out a new single at the same time. It’s called ‘Los Ageless’. It is very good, which is the very least you should have expected. You can listen to it here:

Also, if you haven’t already listened to the episode of ‘Song Exploder’ featuring the album’s first single, ‘New York’, mate, what are you even doing with your life?
