REC'D: New St. Vincent - "Cruel" from Strange Mercy

St. Vincent Strange Mercy

St. Vincent frontlady Annie Clark has been busy promoting her forthcoming third record, Strange Mercy, the successor to her 2009 breakthrough Actor. The eccentric songstress released first single “Surgeon” a few weeks back, and we have a brand new song from the record called “Cruel” and an accompanying video to boot.

The song continues to showcase Clark's fondness for epic, oddly schemed baroque pop, the video a literal representation of the cruelty of family life. Check out the entertaining clip below; Strange Mercy comes out September 13th via 4AD.
