"St. Vincent has high hopes for you," barked a platinum blonde receptionist, clad in a bright pink spandex bodysuit and white pumps, as she greeted me and a group of other baffled twenty-somethings at the entrance to the singer's private Oct. 4 "escape room"-themed event with Spotify in New York City. High hopes for what, we weren't sure -- but we were about to find out.
The event, part of Spotify's Fans First program, invited the lauded singer/writer/instrumentalist's most devoted listeners on the streaming platform to a warehouse close to Times Square, with the promise of a sneak peek at St. Vincent's upcoming Masseduction (out Oct. 13) -- and a chance to meet the star born Annie Clark herself. But first, we'd have to join forces with strangers to solve six puzzles inside the dystopian-themed warehouse, each completed challenge unlocking an iPod loaded with one unreleased Masseduction track.
