In a statement about the record, St. Vincent said: “’Daddy’s Home’ collects stories of being down and out in downtown NYC. Last night’s heels on the morning train. Glamour that’s been up for three days straight.”
St. Vincent began writing the album in 2019 after her father was released from prison following his arrest in 2010, and ‘Daddy’s Home’ is heavily inspired by the vinyls her dad used to listen to when she was a child.
‘Daddy’s Home’ was produced by Annie Clark and Jack Antonoff, recorded by Laura Sisk, mixed by Cian Riordan, and mastered by Chris Gehringer.
The music was performed by Annie, Jack, Cian, Thomas, Evan Smith, Sam KS, Greg Leisz, Daniel Hart, Michael Leonhard, Lynne Fiddmont and Kenya Hathaway.
Alongside the album announcement St. Vincent also released her first single from the new record, ‘Pay Your Way In Pain’, the music video for which was also released on Thursday.
