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.
