Why do we like this?

Emerging from her tutelage under David Byrne, St. Vincent returns with a fierce preview to her new self-titled album, due out February 25, 2014.

Self-described as "a party record you could play at a funeral," it will mark Annie Clark's fourth LP under the moniker and first since collaborating with the former Talking Heads frontman on 2012's Love This Giant.

On the cover, we find the indie darling reconstituted into a silver-haired visage sitting atop a pink throne, with a sharply deadpan stare. The preview track "Birth In Reverse" (#2 of 11) embodies the edgier sound Clark was delving into around the end of her Strange Mercy tour. Reminiscent of her last single, The Pop Group-inspired "Krokodil," it features frantic, spiraling guitar riffs rebounding off an exuberant beat.

When Clark sings "laugh all you want, but I want more" it screams like a warning shot, St. Vincent can't be stopped.
