St. Vincent will hit the road early next year with a slew of North American tour dates to coincide with her upcoming fourth album, St. VincentPitchfork reports.

The singer and songwriter, whose real name is Annie Clark, already has a handful of European dates lined up for February, and will start her North American run at Terminal 5 in New York City on February 26th, just a day after the scheduled release of St. Vincent. The tour will run through March and wrap up April 12th in Buffalo, New York, at Ashbury Hall. You can check out a full list of dates below.

Along with yesterday's album announcement, St. Vincent also released her new single, "Birth In Reverse," which propels ahead under the strength of the blistering, melodic crunch of Clark's guitar. Helmed by longtime producer John Congleton (who also produced 2009's Actor and 2011's Strange Mercy), St. Vincent was recorded in Dallas with Dap-Kings drummer Homer Steinweiss and Midlake percussionist McKenzie Smith. Rhythm was crucial to the new record, Clark said in a statement, adding, "I wanted to make a party record you could play at a funeral."

The record marks St. Vincent's first album with new label Loma Vista and will follow-up her 2012 collaborative effort with David Byrne, Love This Giant. Clark will also appear in an upcoming episode of Portlandia, which returns for its fourth season next year; she previously appeared on the sketch show modeling the Portland Police Department's "arresting" new uniforms (not to mention, Portlandia stars Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein also showed up in character in the video for St. Vincent's "Laughing With a Mouth of Blood").

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
