A lot of people have a hard time choosing between New York and LA but, for St. Vincent's Annie Clark, she's decided, "Why not have both?" The queer songstress whose been gearing up for the release of her new, still-untitled album this fall, debuted "LA," the follow-up single to last month's "New York."

If you just hastily checked Spotify or Apple Music for the new song so you could put it on repeat, we've got bad news. Clark performed the new song at Summer Sonic festival in Tokyo, so you'll have to settle for the video of her performing it below.
Now that you've cried and wondered aloud at how such a perfect musician can exist, take a seat because Clark wasn't content to just debut a new song. She also spilled some steaming hot goss to The New Yorker about the Jack Antonoff-produced album. Much like our own lives, this record is all about "sex and drugs and sadness" and, on a song called "Pills," she brought her former girlfriend Cara Delavigne into the studio--albeit under the name "Kid Monkey."
As for the strange visuals we can expect from her upcoming "Fear the Future" tour, Clark has no plans to tone down her usual, wild outfits and performances. The shows may feature a "skin suit" made to look like whoever is wearing it is naked, which will continue the theme of nudity she's planning with the proposed album cover--it's said to feature the bare butt of her research assistant, artist and model Carlotta Kohl.
