St. Vincent Offers Up a Cover of Rihanna and SZA's 'Consideration' For Our Consideration

    St. Vincent has been pretty ubiquitous since her fifth LP Masseduction came out back in October. She racked up the plaudits in the end-of-year awards and she's currently in the middle of her Fear The Future Tour, which has been extended well into 2018. Just recently she performed some pared-back tracks from Masseduction for NPR's Tiny Desk Concerts and a couple of weeks ago shared a blurry Instagram video of her pre-show warm up with Sleater Kinney's "Modern Girl".

    Now, in a session for Spotify Singles, she's given us two new performances - "Los Ageless" in the stripped-down style of that impressive Tiny Desk Concert, as well as a very unexpected, and more than welcome, cover of "Consideration". "Consideration" is the opening song of Rihanna's 2016 album ANTI, a track which also features SZA, and this cover completely shifts the tone of the song. It's fuzzy and restrained, abandoning the clapping drums in favor of a minimalist bass line that allows the vocal to take center stage. Annie Clark has attempted covers from all genres of music over the years, nailing pretty much every one, and this is yet more evidence of her ability to turn her hand to anything she pleases.

    You can listen to "Los Ageless" and "Consideration" below.
