On Saturday (April 3), St. Vincent returned to the Saturday Night Live stage for the first time since 2014. Annie Clark live-debuted "Pay Your Way In Pain" and "The Melting Of The Sun" off her upcoming album, Daddy's Home. The singer-songwriter personified the songs' retro sound by dressing like it was the early '70s. During "Pay Your Way In Pain," she donned a flowing bright green jumpsuit and oversized white jacket with "DADDY" embroidered on the back. For "The Melting Of The Sun" she opted for a fur coat draped over a sequined slip with pink lace trim. For both tunes, she was joined by a trio of impeccable backup singers.
Watch both performances below.
Daddy's Home is St. Vincent's sixth studio album (first since 2017's Grammy-nominated MASSEDUCTION) and sees Clark make a "tectonic shift" from her signature art rock sound.
“Daddy’s Home collects stories of being down and out in downtown NYC," she explained in a statement. "Last night’s heels on the morning train. Glamour that’s been up for three days straight.”
The album was co-produced by Jack Antonoff and is slated for a May 14 release. It's available for pre-order here. Aside from the standard vinyl, digital and CD formats, Daddy's Home will also be available on cassette and 8-track.
