Watch St. Vincent On Colbert

When she and David Byrne teamed up to release Love This Giant in 2012, St. Vincent showed up on The Colbert Report. A couple of weeks ago, St. Vincent made an appearance on the new Comedy Central game show @Midnight. But Annie Clark, you will be relieved to know, is not moving backwards in the Comedy Central late-night rankings. Last night, she was the guest on The Colbert Report, where she used the word “techno-shamanism” without any evident irony, and where Colbert got in a truly great hair joke. Clark is always an absolutely charming interview subject, and during the interview, she somehow came across as both pretentious and unpretentious at the same time. A difficult feat! She also icily knocked out two songs from her new self-titled album: “Digital Witness” and, as an online bonus, “Birth In Reverse.” Watch the interview and both performances below.

St. Vincent is out now on Republic/Loma Vista.
