Do the caps locks convey the enormity of my excitement? NO! I got so wrapped up thinking how excited I am for the new Metric/Au Revoir Simone/Scary Mansion that I momentarily forgot about Annie Clark, until now.
New album titled Actor is out on May 5th on 4AD. I’m still sad she cancelled her London show last September so I am so so so excited for the tour, which will hopefully be announced in the next few months. She’s doing a US tour first though, stopping at SXSW, Bonnaroo and Sasquatch.
Here is a bit of the obligatory wordy press release:
“‘Actor’ takes the ambitious compositional and sonic underpinnings of Clark’s debut as a starting point and never looks back. The arrangements are more masterful, the songwriting grander, the performances ever more confident and inspired.”
