Watch St. Vincent Debut “Every Tear Disappears,” “Rattlesnake,” “Regret” At DVF Runway Show

Earlier today, St. Vincent debuted several cuts from her self-titled fourth album in a live performance at Spring Studios during Diane von Furstenberg’s New York Fashion Week runway show. The event was webcast by Unstaged, the AMEX performance series that showed us Janelle Monáe’s live soundtrack to Rebecca Minkoff’s NYFW runway show last year. In the video below first you’ll see Annie Clark and band perform the previously unheard “Every Tear Disappears” at 1:06:33, “Prince Johnny” at 1:10:24, and current single “Digital Witness” 1:14:39 while runway models show DVF’s fall collection. Once the designer comes out to greet her audience, the models start dancing and gold confetti rains from the ceiling.

Later in the program (1:29:34), you’ll see some behind-the-scenes footage in which Clark meets von Furstenberg’s team and they discuss the 40th anniversary of the wrap dress and preparations for this event. Then, there’s a “digital encore” featuring performances of “Rattlesnake” (1:35:07), “Digital Witness” (1:40:13), “Regret” (1:43:53), and “Birth In Reverse” (1:47:41). They all sound great and you’ll wanna pay special attention to Clark’s abstract dance moves.

So, altogether three St. Vincent songs we’re hearing for the first time…

UPDATE: AMEX took down the runway show, but you can find various clips along with some of the encore below…
