One sort of optional thing you might do is to realize that there are six seasons instead of four. The poetry of four seasons is all wrong for this part of the planet, and this may explain why we are so depressed so much of the time. I mean, spring doesn’t feel like spring a lot of the time, and November is all wrong for autumn, and so on.

Here is the truth about the seasons: Spring is May and June. What could be springier than May and June? Summer is July and August. Really hot, right? Autumn is September and October. See the pumpkins? Smell those burning leaves? Next comes the season called Locking. November and December aren’t winter. They’re Locking. Next comes winter, January and February. Boy! Are they ever cold!

What comes next? Not spring. ‘Unlocking’ comes next. What else could cruel March and only slightly less cruel April be? March and April are not spring. They’re Unlocking.

St. Vincent Record Store Day Release
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.
Track List:
"Pieta"/"Sparrow"
