St Vincent
‘The Melting Of The Sun’
Second Track from Daddy’s Home Out Now
Appearing on Saturday Night Live April 3rd
Album Out May 14th

Released just ahead of St. Vincent’s return to the iconic US show Saturday Night Live this weekend, the brand new track “The Melting Of The Sun” is available across streaming and digital platforms. Watch the lyric video here.

Saturday Night Live is shown here on Sky Comedy channel Sundays at 9pm.

“The Melting Of The Sun” is the second track to be released in advance of St. Vincent’s forthcoming Daddy’s Home, out May 14 on Loma Vista Recordings. The latest taste of the new album’s gritty 70s vinyl vibe, “The Melting Of The Sun” pays lyrical homage to a cast of St. Vincent inspirations — musical, personal and other:

 

So sorry missed the party
Hello on the dark side of the moon
Jane lost it crashed her corvette
Ran into the tide in Malibu
And we all heard the gun but I was slow to run
It’s just the melting of the sun
It’s just the sun
I wanna watch you watch it burn
So watch it burn
Saint Joni ain’t no phony
Smoking reds where Furry sang the blues
My Marilyn shot her heroin hell she said it’s better than abuse
So who am I trying to be?  A benzo beauty queen
It’s just the melting of the sun
It’s just the sun
I wanna watch you watch it burn
So watch it burn
We always knew the day would come
The day has come
It’s just the melting of the sun
Brave Tori told her story
Police said they couldn’t catch the man
Proud Nina got subpoenaed singing “Mississippi good goddamn”
But me I never cried to tell the truth I lied
Girl the world’s spinning round
Spinning down and out of time
Girl you can’t give in now
When you’re down down and out
Girl the world’s spinning round
Spinning down and out of time
Girl you can’t give in now
When you’re down down and out
