St. Vincent is back! She’s been laying low after the chart-topping, Grammy-winning success of her last record Masseduction in 2017, but the singer-songwriter and electric guitar maestro first began dropping clues that a new album was imminent earlier this week. Eagle-eyed fans noticed fly posters springing up in New York and Los Angeles featuring photos of the musician—real name Annie Clark—striking a pose in a flared corduroy suit, with a retro font asking: Who’s Your Daddy? Then, yesterday, a teaser video dropped that saw Clark stalk the halls of a crumbling hotel (with more than a passing resemblance to the Chelsea) before picking up a phone in a cropped blonde Candy Darling wig. 

Finally, it seems her fan’s prayers have been answered: Clark announced today the release of her upcoming album Daddy’s Home, kicking things off with her lead single, “Pay Your Way in Pain.” And the distinctly ’70s vibe of her outfit on the posters was no red herring. In her just-released video, Clark is living the full Warhol superstar fantasy. A bottle-green suit with wide lapels and a ruffled shirt—straight out of Bowie’s Young Americans-era playbook—marks a new, deliciously sleazier frontier for St. Vincent’s style. As she opens a fresh chapter in both her sonic and sartorial journey, one thing’s for sure: nobody does it like Annie.
