Just earlier this month she was nominated in the Best Alternative Music Album category for the record, alongside Alt-J, Arcade Fire, Cage The Elephant and Jack White.
Produced by John Congleton the tracks were arranged and demoed by Annie in Austin, Texas and recorded at Elmwood Studios in Dallas, Texas.
St Vincent received many four and five star reviews following its release in February.
