Last month, St. Vincent revealed that a “heavy record” was in the works prior to the production of her upcoming album, Daddy's Home. Well, while there's no fresh news on that front, we are set to hear a new heavy offering from Annie Clark.

As part of an exclusive Record Store Day release, the mercurial guitarist has recorded a cover of Metallica's Sad But True, taken from their 1991 self-titled full-length (aka the Black Album). It follows her cover of Nine Inch Nails' Piggy with Dave Grohl, which was released in November last year.
