Next week promises the release of MASSEDUCTION, the fifth album from St. Vincent. Boasting contributions from Jack Antonoff, Kamasi Washington, Jenny Lewis, and Top Dawg Entertainment producer Sounwave, it follows her acclaimed self-titled LP from 2014.

In the lead-up to the record’s release, the indie rocker born Annie Clark turned in a two-song performance on the Late Show on Wednesday, playing both “New York” and “Los Ageless”. For the former, Clark was joined by a pianist dressed in a ski mask; she also changed the track’s lyrics from “motherfucker” to “You’re the only other sucker in the city who can handle me.”
