St. Vincent, a.k.a. Annie Clark, will release her sophomore album this spring with the forthcoming Actor, due out on April 20th.
Annie's label 4AD foretells of the new batch of songs by saying "Actor takes the ambitious compositional and sonic underpinnings of Clark's debut as a starting point and never looks back. The arrangements are more masterful, the songwriting grander, the performances ever more confident and inspired."
She'll start playing some live shows too, with stops at the SXSW Music Festival and the Sasquatch! Festival.
Actor was co-produced by Annie Clark and John Congleton (Modest Mouse, Polyphonic Spree), with the music being written and arranged by Clark.
The album represents a feat of large ambition on the part of Annie. "I wanted to make these songs technicolour animatronic rides," she said.
