Watch St. Vincent Perform New Songs “I Prefer Your Love” & “Huey Newton” In Berlin

By Tom Breihan / February 17, 2014

St. Vincent’s feverishly awaited new self-titled album is now eight days away from release, but we’ve only heard studio versions of three of its songs — “Birth In Reverse,” “Digital Witness,” and “Prince Johnny” — though we’ve heard live versions of a few more. On Thursday night, St. Vincent played the Berlin venue Postbahnhof and trotted out a few new songs, including a few we hadn’t seen her live yet. She also wore a dress that made her look like the victim of a very serious gunshot wound and gave the world a look at what I hope is her touring stage set. Below, watch good, clear fan-made videos of her playing new songs “I Prefer Your Love” and “Huey Newton.”

St. Vincent is out 2/25 on Republic/Loma Vista, and maybe if we all listen hard enough, we can figure out why she named a song after an iconic Black Panther Party leader.
