MP3 At 3PM: St. Vincent

stvncent355St. Vincent’s next album is titled Actor, and the name fits; its whimsical tunes are full of movie-soundtrack allusions. Featuring lots of Annie Clark’s sultry soprano, “The Strangers” is a fuzzy, danceable piece of Technicolor pop that brings to mind both Disney princess movies and ’60s musicals set in tropical getaways. Look for the April 20 release of the album’s first single, “Actor Out of Work,” and check out Actor when it hits stores and iTunes May 4.
