Musician and producer St. Vincent is out with her sixth solo studio album, Daddy’s Home. It was inspired by the music of the '70s. KEXP’s Cheryl Waters recently caught up with St. Vincent to talk about the record, what about the 70s inspired her, the power of backup singers, and the women St. Vincent shouts out in her song, "Melting Of The Sun."

“Whether it was Nina Simone speaking out about civil rights or Tori Amos speaking about sexual assault and being punished for being honest, I just wanted to say thank you for being brave and being authentically yourselves, even when the world was hostile to that,” St. Vincent said. “You made my life easier as a female artist, and I hope that I make the next generation's life easier, too."
