These exclusive new songs were recorded with John Congleton during the St. Vincent sesions in 2013. The propulsive and soaring “Pieta” has become a mainstay in the St. Vincent live show and “Sparrow” is its counterpoint with a deep musing on death and loss that recalls the sonic textures of Big Science-era Laurie Anderson. The two songs are presented in a deluxe, die-cut, foil-embossed package with a 10″ disc cut at 45 RPM. The package was designed by Willo Perron, Annie Clark’s collaborator on the striking visuals for St. Vincent. Each piece is individually numbered,
Pieta/ Sparrow is available exclusively through independent shops from 8.12.14 as part of Universal’s 12 Days of Christmas promotion.
