We first heard St. Vincent’s Annie Clark tackle the great Tom Waits as part of a recent tribute tour for his 1985 classic Rain Dogs. Now, SPIN Magazine brings us video of Clark’s latest Waits cover, an acoustic take on Rain Dogs’ “Tango Till They’re Sore”. Check out the video below; also included is an acoustic performance of “Surgeon”, from her upcoming LP Strange Mercy, and a behind-the-scenes clip from her Spin Magazine cover shoot.
Also, in case you missed it, St. Vincent was on Letterman last night and you re-watch the brilliant performance here.
Strange Mercy hits stores September 13th via 4AD.
