St. Vincent Made a Children's Album with Her Aunt and Uncle
Clearly music runs in St. Vincent’s family, as her aunt and uncle jazz duo Tuck & Patti previously guested on her MASSEDUCTION LP and joined her on tour last year. Now, they’ve extended their creative collaboration to making a full-blown children’s album.
A far cry from the sexy imagery conjured by MASSEDUCTION, the upcoming kid-friendly record features modern reinterpretations tunes from “a classic, songwriter-y pantheon,” St. Vincent explained in a new interview on Beats 1.
The concept for the album was initially going to include actual children’s songs, but as she put it: “it turns out a lot children’s songs suck.”
St. Vincent produced the album, which features cuts like the White Stripes’ “We Are Going to Be Friends” and Harry Nilsson’s “Coconut” — and other tunes that “completely appeal to kids because their sing-songy-ness and the relatively clean content.”
She goes on to describe it as “a kid’s record for parents with taste.”

At this time, there’s not firm release date for the record, but stay tuned for any updates.
