St. Vincent has announced a new addition to her North American Fear the Future Tour. She took to Instagram to introduce the special guests—the jazz duo Tuck & Patti, who happen to be Annie Clark’s uncle and aunt. “Cue up Sister Sledge and Jade’s ‘We Are Family,’” Clark said in the announcement. The married duo of Tuck Andress and Patti Cathcart Andress have been touring and recording since the 1980s. They worked on multiple songs from St. Vincent’s new record Masseduction including the single “Los Ageless.”
When Clark was a teenager, Tuck & Patti brought their niece on tour with them. Before she left for college, Clark road managed one of their European tours. She has spoken often about their influence on her as a musician. “They taught me how to work and about trying to achieve excellence and transcendence through music,” she recently told Pitchfork.
