After teasing a new album due out later this year, St. Vincent, aka Annie Clark has announced that she will be hitting the road this fall for the Fear the Future tour.
St. Vincent released her last album back in 2014 to rave reviews. The self-titled LP not only got her a performance on the season finale of Saturday Night Live when it came out, but she also won a Grammy for Best Alternative Album.
The Fear The Future Tour announcement comes in the midst of an eventful year for St. Vincent.
The singer and “bona fide guitar god [and] pop visionary” (Rolling Stone) made her directorial debut in February when The Birthday Party from the XX horror anthology premiered at the Sundance Film Festival (she also wrote and scored the piece).
More recently, she was named ambassador for Record Store Day 2017, recorded a 7” single with John Legend to benefit Planned Parenthood, and unveiled updates to her signature collection of Ernie Ball guitars.
In recent conversation with Rookie Mag, St. Vincent shared her words of wisdom for teens struggling to stay positive about themselves. Not only did the musician admit that she was “very, very, very shy and very anxious” growing up, but she also explained that she “felt very uncomfortable talking to people.” To remedy these kinds of thoughts and feelings, the sexually fluid rocker reminded fans that “no one’s looking at you and no one cares because everyone is obsessed with themselves … and know that other people are feeling the same way as you.”
St. Vincent also added:
Fake it till you make it. If you don’t have confidence, pretend to be a person who does, and eventually, you will have confidence because you’ll see the fruits of your reaching out to people.”
