2013 came around and Annie decided to sign with Republic Records. St. Vincent announced their fourth album "Digital witness", released in February 2014. She got to the top of the best album of the year list and ranked #1 in TIME Magazine and #4 in Rolling Stone.
My personal favorite songs of hers would be Cheerleader and Teenage Talk. The sound of St. Vincent is so different from anything I've ever heard. She is definitely going somewhere.
