Over the weekend, St Vincent performed “Pay Your Way in Pain” and “The Melting of the Sun” from her upcoming album Daddy’s Home on Saturday Night Live.
Sporting a green jumpsuit under a Gucci jacket with ‘Daddy’ stitched across the shoulders, St Vincent—aka Annie Clark—opened with a spirited take on Daddy’s Home lead single “Pay Your Way in Pain.” Supported by a full band and backing vocalists, Clark followed up with a laid-back rendition of brand-new cut “The Melting of the Sun” while sitting on a plush armchair.
Daddy’s Home will be released May 14 via Loma Vista, four years after its predecessor Masseduction. Both were co-produced by Clark and Jack Antonoff.
“Daddy’s Home collects stories of being down and out in downtown NYC,” Clark said in a statement. “Last night’s heels on the morning train. Glamor that’s been up for three days straight.”
