Annie Clark (better known as St. Vincent) is one of the many collaborators on Taylor Swift’s new album, Lover. The guitarist features on Cruel Summer.

Clark shares a writing credit with Jack Antonoff – who notably produced her 2017 record, MASSEDUCTION – on the tune. And although this is the first time Clark and Swift have collaborated on a song, the former’s appearance on Lover doesn’t come as a massive surprise. In 2015, the two shared the stage on the pop star’s 1989 tour – Swift had brought out St. Vincent to cover a Beck track, Dreams.

Apart from Clark and Antonoff, other collaborators on Lover include Joel Little, Adam Feeney, Louis Bell, Frank Dukes and Mark Anthony Spears.

Back in April, we reviewed St. Vincent’s new-for-2019 signature Sterling guitar, saying, “With stellar playability and tones, this sensibly priced signature instrument is just a few manufacturing tweaks away from greatness.”
