New York” is a song by American musician St. Vincent. It was released on June 30th, 2017, through Loma Vista as the lead single off her fifth studio album, Masseduction. “New York” is a sombre ballad mourning the end of a relationship. Unlike her previous material, the song does not contain Clark’s “fiery guitar playing, nor the squelching industrial soundscapes of her great self-titled album from 2014. It’s just her voice, and some simple lilting piano chords—that’s about it.” The song finds Clark “singing without apparent irony about personal loss. The song could also be read as a eulogy for a certain portion of the soul of New York City itself; she sings mostly about locales in the East Village, painting them with a wild romantic streak that exists mostly in the memory of the city’s denizens.” It is far more straightforward than we’ve come to expect from Annie Clark,

American singer-songwriter St. Vincent treats the New York audience to her track fittingly titled ‘New York.’

St. Vincent was the musical guest on the Late Show With Stephen Colbert, performing two new tracks from her forthcoming album Masseduction

Annie Clark chose to sing ‘New York’ live on the show with the iconic imagery from the album’s artwork taking centre stage behind her, choosing to change the usual “motherfucker” line to “you’re the only other sucker in the city who can handle me” due to television guidelines.

Following the live TV performance, St Vincent decided to treat guests of the show to a rendition of ‘Los Ageless’ – another track from the album but the familiar PVC boots as seen in the official video reemerged for the performance.
