St. Vincent – “Prince Johnny”

We've already heard two songs from St. Vincent's hotly anticipated self-titled fourth LP -- "Birth In Reverse" and "Digital Witness" -- and today, we've got a third.

St. Vincent – “Digital Witness” Video

Annie Clark bka St. Vincent first delivered "Digital Witness" -- the second single from her self-titled forthcoming fourth LP -- earlier this month; the brassy, dance-y track very much reflected the ample time Clark has recently spent collaborating with David Byrne (to my ear anyway; there's also plenty of "Steam"/"Sledgehammer"-style Peter Gabriel in here, too).

Watch Animated St. Vincent Cover A Bob’s Burgers Song
