Watch St. Vincent Perform A Theatrical Version Of “The Nowhere Inn” On Kimmel

St. Vincent mastermind Annie Clark is having a busy year. First, there was the new album Daddy’s Home. Then, there was The Nowhere Inn, the sort of Lynchian mockumentary that she made with Carrie Brownstein, as well as that movie’s soundtrack. Lately, St. Vincent has also returned to the road, playing high up on the bill at a lot of festivals. And last night, St. Vincent were the musical guests on Jimmy Kimmel Live, where they performed “The Nowhere Inn,” the title track from the new film.

St. Vincent on Playing a Satirical Version of Herself in ‘The Nowhere Inn’: ‘The Purpose Isn’t Necessarily to Endear’

The past few years have brought an onslaught of films promising authentic glimpses into the lives of glittering pop figures: the bracing Billie Eilish documentary The World’s A Little Blurry, Taylor Swift’s carefully orchestrated Miss Americana, Beyoncé’s “Beychella” concert film Homecoming, even the Jonas Brothers jumping into the fray with Chasing Happiness. These movies give musicians — and their management — the chance to control their narra...

St. Vincent – “The Nowhere Inn”

At the end of the week, The Nowhere Inn — the mockumentary starring St. Vincent and Carrie Brownstein — is arriving on video-on-demand services (and in select theaters). Annie Clark also did a soundtrack/score for the film, which will come out on September 19th, a couple days after the film is released. Today, St. Vincent is sharing a new track called “The Nowhere Inn,” which acts as a quasi-theme song for the film and comes with a video directed by Nowhere Inn director Bill Benz.

“Daddy’s Home,” the sixth studio album from St. Vincent, arrived in May, but Annie Clark, the artist behind the stage name, says it hasn’t felt fully finished until now. “A record doesn’t really feel complete to me until I’ve actually played the songs for people and with people in real-time,” Clark says on a recent phone call. “Because you get to see how the energy in the crowd changes. “You get to see, like, ‘Oh, they’re all singing along to that part,’” she says. “You get to know in a real way...
