St. Vincent had one of 2014’s best albums with her self-titled fourth release, and she plans to quickly follow it up with a deluxe edition out Feb. 9. In addition to previously heard Record Store Day singles “Pieta” and “Sparrow,” Darkside’s remix of “Digital Witness,” and the B-side “Del Rio,” the re-release will include a brand new song called “Bad Believer,” which the Guardian has premiered today.
Like many of St. Vincent’s gems (“Birth in Reverse,” “Bring Me Your Loves”), “Bad Believer” is an electrifying synth-rocker that’s also undeniably catchy. It also boasts Clark’s usual unapologetic attitude, with her declaring that she has no shame about putting love above faith. The track reaches its peak in a beautifully sung bridge that might make critics think twice about praising her guitar-playing skills over her vocals.
