Hear St. Vincent Break Down “New York” On Song Exploder

St. Vincent’s most recent single is the Jack Antonoff-produced “New York,” and Annie Clark guested on Song Exploder to chat about the making of the track. At the very beginning of the episode, Clark admits that she derives enormous pleasure from saying the word “fuck,” which explains that wonderful line: “You’re the only motherfucker in this city who can handle me.” Clark also discusses Antonoff’s role at length, and explains that some of the lyrics on “New York” were originally attached to another song called “We Were In Paris.” Listen below.
