St. Vincent shares new single ‘Big Time Nothing’

St. Vincent has shared her third and final single ‘Big Time Nothing’ from her seventh album ‘All Born Screaming‘– check it out below.

Opening with a cool, funky, retro-sounding synth beat, St Vincent sings: “Don’t blink / don’t wait / don’t walk you’re late / don’t fall from grace/ behave / don’t trip / sashay ok sashay”.

The track highlights a precarious balance of ennui and urgency underpinned by brainworm basslines, expanding the incendiary sonic palette of side one of the new album.

‘Big Time Nothing’ follows previous release ‘Flea‘ and lead single ‘Broken Man‘. The track serves as the final offering before the release of ‘All Born Screaming’ on April 26 which features the Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl.

NME spoke to St. Vincent about her upcoming record, where she shared the impact of Grohl’s drumming on ‘Broken Man’: “From the beginning of the song, it’s a slow-burn.”

“The shape of the song is climbing the mountain, because it just grows and grows,” she continued. “There are essentially three drummers on the track: the first part is my programming, the second part Mark Guiliana comes in, and then at the very end of the track – just when you think it can’t get any higher – Grohl comes in with this absolute reckless spirit and just takes it to the edge.”

Sharing more details about the LP – which is the follow-up to 2021’s acclaimed ‘Daddy’s Home’ – in a separate interview, Clark added: “It’s a heavier record [than before]. I think it’s black and white and all the colours in a fire – that’s what it sounds like to me.”

“I had Dave Grohl play drums, I had Josh Freese [Devo, A Perfect Circle, Foo Fighters] on drums, Justin Meldal-Johnsen, Mark Guiliana. I worked with my very good friend Cate Le Bon, who is one of my favourite artists ever and a great producer in her own right [too],” she added. “So I just feel lucky to get to work with my friends”
