St Vincent takes us through the creation of the five albums she’s released so far, in the new issue of Uncut, dated January 2015 and out now.

As well as her four full-length releases, Annie Clark explains how she wrote and recorded 2012’s Love This Giant, her collaborative album with David Byrne.

“I constantly take experiences and write about them,” Clark explains of her songwriting. “That’s just how I function, how I make sense of the universe and how I like to live.

“I just like to work,” she admits. “I don’t need scented candles and incense in the studio. I just get to work, it’s not brain surgery, you know?”

The new issue of Uncut is out now.



Uncut is now available as a digital edition! Download here on your iPad/iPhone and here on your Kindle Fire or Nook.
