Tulsa native St. Vincent performed Wednesday on CBS Interactive’s award-winning webcast concert series, “Live on Letterman,” and she also was featured performing “Bring Me Your Loves” Thursday night on “The Late Show with David Letterman,” delighting the host with her rock-awesomeness.

In honor of the Thursday night Letterman performance, fans can download “Bring Me Your Loves” for free here.

St. Vincent’s “Live on Letterman” showcase featured songs from her self-titled fourth album, which has earned career-best reviews. St. Vincent, aka Annie Clark, has been moving at breakneck speed for the past few years. Her February 2014 release of “St. Vincent” on Loma Vista Recordings follows 2011’s critically acclaimed “Strange Mercy.” NPR’s “All Things Considered” called St. Vincent’s self-titled album “dazzling,” and “Rolling Stone” hailed it as “fantastic” and her “tightest, tensest, best set of songs to date.”

St. Vincent recently performed with Nirvana at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, rocked the season finale of “Saturday Night Live,” and in 2012 released an album titled “Love This Giant” with Talking Heads musician David Byrne. St. Vincent’s first full-length album, “Marry Me,” was released in 2007. After her SNL performance, Chicago-based Ace Reporter covered her “Year of The Tiger” and made it available for free download.

She is playing the Pitchfork and Pemberton music festivals this weekend, then heading on an international tour and will finish the year opening for the Black Keys’ on their U.S. tour. Her trek with the Black Keys will include a Dec. 20 stop at Tulsa’s BOK Center. For more information, go to www.bokcenter.com.
