Watch St. Vincent’s Video for ‘New York’

St. Vincent has yet to reveal details about her next album, but she’s already got a video for the first single out. You can watch the clip for “New York” above.

“I think Annie’s New York is the New York of my dreams — one that is blurry and fractured, dreamy and flat,” director Alex Da Corte said in a press release. “It is the Toontown to my Hollywood. It is beautiful but slightly out of reach.”

She talked about the new record last week, saying that the songs were about “sex and drugs and sadness.” That’s certainly reflected in “New York,” in which she regrets the loss of a significant other. “New York isn’t New York without you, love,” she begins, before going on to call the partner “the only mother f—er in the city who can stand me.” The clip continues the theme, as she appears relatively emotionless while being surrounded by a variety of scenarios with bright color palettes.

“The emotional tones are all true,” she added. “The songs are the most coherent expression of them. Songs are like prophecies. They can be stronger than you are.”

She has also recorded a version of the Beatles‘ “All You Need Is Love” for a commercial promoting Tiffany & Co.’s new perfume. Although she doesn’t appear in it, Stereogum notes that the clip features models Vittoria Ceretti, Julia Nobis, Anchok Majak, and Georgina Grenville.
