St. Vincent, aka Annie Clark, recently teased on Twitter that she had spent an evening remaking The 'Golden Girls' Cynthia Fee-penned theme "Thank You For Being A Friend" song into a dirge.
Over the weekend, she shared her reimagined track, an instrumental, ambient piece with sinister synths, and heavy reverb, with a hashtag #thankyouforbeingafriend.
Earlier this year Animal Collective sampled the Golden Girls theme song on the track "Golden Gal" on their album Painting With. The song begins with an intro from the episode "Rose the Prude," focusing on Betty White's character.
After Clark's lengthy Digital Witness tour in support of her widely praised 2014 album St. Vincent, the musician is moving into a different creative arena. Earlier this year, Clark announced that she will make her directorial debut with a segment in XX, an anthology horror film composed of four shorts starring, and helmed entirely by women.
