St Vincent's Annie Clark shows off her football skills in a new video filmed for teen website Rookie.

Click below to watch the video, in which Clark shows viewers how to do a move called the 'rainbow kick'. "It took three years to actually perfect," she says of the move that she learned whilst in school. "I learned it when I was sitting on the bench, watching the good players play."



"I stopped playing soccer when I was about 12 and I started playing guitar when I was about 12," continues Clark, who says that she moved her "obsessive energy" from sports onto music.

The LP 'St Vincent' is set for release on February 24. 'St Vincent' was recorded in Dallas, Texas with Dap-Kings drummer Homer Steinweiss, McKenzie Smith of Midlake and producer John Congleton.

Of the album, Clark has said: "I knew the groove needed to be paramount... I wanted to make a party record you could play at a funeral." St Vincent released her debut album 'Marry Me' in 2007. It was followed by 2009's 'Actor' and 2011's 'Strange Mercy'. In September 2012 she released a collaborative album with David Byrne titled 'Love This Giant'.

Clark will tour the UK and Ireland in February, as part of a wider European tour.

St Vincent will play:

London Shepherds Bush Empire (February 20)
Manchester The Cathedral (21)
Dublin Olympia (22)
