St Vincent's Annie Clark has created her very own signature coffee blend.

Named Bring Me Your Mugs - after the song 'Bring Me Your Loves' on her most recent album 'St Vincent' - the coffee has been made in conjunction with premium US coffee house Intelligentsia, reports Consequence of Sound. The coffee is available from St Vincent's website and Intelligentsia's US locations and according to the label tastes like "orange marmalade, brown sugar and lime zest".

Clark said in a statement: "I love coffee. I sometimes get excited at night thinking of the coffee I'll get to drink in the morning. Coffee is reason to wake up. There are other reasons, of course. But coffee is the incentive, at the very least. I love Intelligentsia coffee. I have stood at their counter waiting for my order, like a fan waiting for a show. Eager. Expectant. So when my favorite coffee shop approached me about collaborating on a signature coffee, I was thrilled."

Speaking about the blend, a spokesperson from Intelligentsia commented: "The selection of coffees from Flecha Roja, Costa Rica was made by Clark herself, after she and Intelligentsia discovered their mutual admiration for each other's respective work. A series of samples were sent to the artist on her 'Digital Witness' global tour, with Flecha Roja being her personal favorite selection."

St Vincent will tour the UK in August, after rescheduling a run of dates that were meant to take place this month. The shows follow the February release of St Vincent's eponymous new album, which was recorded in Dallas, Texas with Dap-Kings drummer Homer Steinweiss, McKenzie Smith of Midlake and producer John Congleton.

St Vincent will play:

Cambridge Junction (August 19)
Leeds Met University (20)
Bristol O2 Academy (21)
Glasgow O2 ABC (26)
Gateshead The Sage (27)
Liverpool O2 Academy (28)
