St. Vincent—the pale-haired, futuristic artist otherwise known as Annie Clark—stopped by The Colbert Report last night to promote her new album and subtly suggest that Stephen Colbert is not exactly who he appears to be. St. Vincent (or “Vinny” as Colbert calls her) performed “Digital Witness” on the show as well as “Birth In Reverse” in an exclusive online clip. She also sat down with Colbert for a delightful interview in which he asks if she modeled her look on Albert Einstein, the two race to list their siblings, and she casually mentions “techno shamanism” like it’s a thing everyone’s heard of. Equal parts charming and strange, the interview is a perfect encapsulation of St. Vincent and a great intro to the artist for those unfamiliar with her work. Anyone looking for more can catch her on tour through June.
