Listen: St. Vincent is chemically dependent in new song 'Pills'
St. Vincent / YouTube

St. Vincent is back with a new track titled "Pills" from her upcoming album Masseduction. The avant-garde performer, whose real name is Annie Clark, sings of the many uses pills have in everyday life -- from sleeping to thinking to eating to growing -- and the song takes on an ominously poppy tone over its five-minute duration. Take a listen to the track above, which features writing credits from Bleachers' Jack Antonoff.

Clark goes into detail how pills can run nearly every facet of someone's life. The half-time chorus breaks it down nicely with the refrain of "Pills to wake, pills to sleep/ Pills, pills, pills every day of the week/ Pills to walk, pills to think/ Pills, pills, pills for the family/ Pills to grow, pills to shrink/ Pills, pills, pills and a good stiff drink."

"Pills" is the latest single off of Masseduction, which is set to drop on Oct. 13. It was preceded by "Los Ageless" last week and "New York," which she recently performed on the "Late Show With Stephen Colbert."

St. Vincent is currently on tour in Europe through the end of the month. She'll embark on a North American run of shows between November and January, making 28 stops in the U.S. along the way.
