Published February 6, 2014

Following last week's release of her music video for "Digital Witness," St. Vincent has just released another song from her upcoming self-titled album, out February 25th.

Set to a chilled out electronic backbeat, the song is a sultry and smokey jam, with lyrics dedicated to the Pinocchio-like protagonist, Prince Johnny. "Saw you pray to all to make you a real boy," Annie Clark sings during the refrain, as a subtly distorted guitar syncs up with the bass line. Listen to the track above.

St. Vincent "Prince Johnny" lyrics:

Prince Johnny, you're kind but you're not simple
By now I think I know the difference
You wanna be a son of someone
Remember the time we went and snorted
That piece of the Berlin Wall that you'd extorted
And we had such a laugh of it
Prostrate on my carpet

You traced the Andes with your index
And bragged when and where and who
You're gonna bed next
Always sons of someones
Always sons of someones

Saw you pray to all
To make you a real boy
Saw you pray to all
To make you a real boy

Prince Johnny, you're kind but do be careful
By now I know just when to stamp here
When all your friends and acolytes
Holding court in bathroom stalls

Where you pray to all
To make you a real boy
Saw you pray to all
To make you a real boy

But honey don't mistake my affection
For another spittin'-penny-style redemption
Cause we're all sons of someones
We're all sons of someones
I'll mean more than I mean to you
I'll mean more than I meant to you

So I pray to all
To make me a real girl
So I pray to all
To make me a real girl
So I pray to all
All
All
All
