If you haven't already, check out the excellent new single from St Vincent which is about losing David Bowie among other things. Simple and affecting for once from an artist that can sometimes let her search for the avant garde get in the way of emotional connection. She says, "he was probably the only person I'd never met that I cried about when he died. I don't think I'd ever done that before"

Thank you, I was wondering if an official video would surface - what a cracker. The lyrics will guarantee no AirPlay but is it about AirPlay anymore? probably not. Stunningly well made, as was the digital witnesses video and song. I've a funny feeling that this might be the year of listening a lot more to her music. I'm reminded of Nick cave who seemed to be born a rockstar with talent in spades, yet there is a difference between being a rockstar and really connecting with people and For me it took about 10 years for Nick Cave to really find his voice. David Byrne was also the same for me - It's easier to move the mind than the soul, and his strange overtones seems to be about that very fact - you need the technical knowledge about songwriting and you equally need some heart but neither is enough on its own to make truly great music. For me St Vincent has a beautiful voice and is a talented instrumentalist and I think this may well be the year she moves my soul and I wish her every success in the world, she has earned it.

Annie has collaborated with Carrie Brownstein on some videos for her Instagram feed.
(Remember that Blackstar bomb for Bowie's feed?)
Anyway it's a real snark fest.

I have seen the track listing for the new album.
Can't wait to hear "Happy Birthday Johnny"
