“This is a more primary colour record than I’ve done in the past. It’s generally a bit brighter. It was less emotionally fraught than when I was writing Strange Mercy. There’s an exuberance in Love This Giant, and maybe some of that carried on into this record. It’s entertainment. It’s fun… I did a lot of sketching for St Vincent in GarageBand before going into the studio. The process of actually recording it was less about discovery and putting the Frankenstein’s monster together, and a bit more about execution. There were a lot of things that had already been decided long before I walked into the studio. It was a different experience than Strange Mercy or Actor. Recording took about six months all in, around May 2013. John and I usually work every day and take maybe one day off every ten or twelve days.” – Annie “St. Vincent” Clark[11]
