St. Vincent (Annie Clark) released a new single entitled “The Melting Of The Sun.” The track appears on the upcoming St. Vincent album, Daddy’s Home, due out on May 14 via Loma Vista Recordings.

“The Melting Of The Sun” joins the previously shared single, “Pay Your Way In Pain.” The two songs are among the 11 making up Daddy’s Home, which was co-produced by Clark and Jack Antonoff, who also worked with Clark on 2017’s Masseduction.

St. Vincent posted “The Melting Of The Sun” lyrics that pay “lyrical homage to a cast of St. Vincent inspirations — musical, personal and other.” Find the track and the lyrics below:

“The Melting Of The Sun” lyrics:

So sorry missed the party
Hello on the dark side of the moon
Jane lost it crashed her corvette
Ran into the tide in Malibu
And we all heard the gun but I was slow to run
It’s just the melting of the sun
It’s just the sun
I wanna watch you watch it burn
So watch it burn
Saint Joni ain’t no phony
Smoking reds where Furry sang the blues
My Marilyn shot her heroin hell she said it’s better than abuse
So who am I trying to be? A benzo beauty queen
It’s just the melting of the sun
It’s just the sun
I wanna watch you watch it burn
So watch it burn
We always knew the day would come
The day has come
It’s just the melting of the sun
Brave Tori told her story
Police said they couldn’t catch the man
Proud Nina got subpoenaed singing “Mississippi good goddamn”
But me I never cried to tell the truth I lied
Girl the world’s spinning round
Spinning down and out of time
Girl you can’t give in now
When you’re down down and out
Girl the world’s spinning round
Spinning down and out of time
Girl you can’t give in now
When you’re down down and out
