On May 5, 4AD will release ‘Actor’ the anticipated new album by St. Vincent (nee Annie Clark), and the follow-up to her first album ‘Marry Me,’ one of the most acclaimed debuts of 2007. ‘Actor’ was co-produced by Clark and John Congleton (Modest Mouse, Polyphonic Spree etc…) and features eleven new songs, all written and arranged by Clark.
‘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. “I wanted to make these songs technicolor animatronic rides,” says Clark.
