Austin City Limits has shared a preview of St. Vincent’s upcoming episode on the long-running concert series with a festive performance of “…At The Holiday Party.”

The musician performed two shows at the series’ home venue of The Moody Theatre in Austin, Texas earlier this year as part of the Daddy’s Home tour. During both sets, she played “…At The Holiday Party,” which appeared on that record, released in May 2021.

In the video, St. Vincent – aka Annie Clark – is brought a drink by a woman in a yellow and red waitress outfit. “I would like to have a toast,” Clark tells the crowd. “To Austin City Limits and the third time being here, and more than anything, to all of us getting to be back together again.”

After clinking their cups, Clark and her band launched into the song, which the star told The Sun is a “modern take on “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” by The Rolling Stones.”

St. Vincent has previously appeared on Austin City Limits in 2009 and 2018. The full episode with her latest performance will be broadcast on January 15, 2022, alongside footage of singer-songwriter Joy Oladokun.

The 47th season of Austin City Limits will premiere on PBS at 9 pm ET on January 8. The series will feature performances from Olivia Rodrigo, Duran Duran, Terry Allen, and Phoebe Bridgers, as well as special episodes dedicated to Nanci Griffith and the ACL 7th Annual Hall Of Fame Honors.

The latter will induct Lucinda Williams, Wilco, and Alejandro Escovedo into the hall, while performances and tributes will come from the likes of Jason Isbell, Rosanne Cash, Margo Price, Sheila E., Bill Callahan, Japanese Breakfast, and more.

As well as being nominated for Best Alternative Music Album at the 2022 Grammys, Daddy’s Home was recently named among one of influential indie retailer Rough Trade’s best albums of 2021. To commemorate the record making it into the list’s Top 20, it has been released on a new colorway vinyl, exclusive to the store.

One of the album’s highlights, “Pay Your Way In Pain”, has also been reimagined via a new remix from British punk band IDLES.

“I wanted to ramp up the camp and the violence in the remix but still maintain the sentiments and sensibilities of the original track,” the band’s Mark Bowen said of their industrial-tinged new version.
