David Byrne & St. Vincent: Collaborative Album, Fall Tour


Former Talking Heads frontman David Byrne and singer/guitarist St. Vincent have teamed up for a new collaborative album entitled Love This Giant. The record is due out September 11 on 4AD/Todo Mundo.

A press release states that the bulk of the project was recorded at Water Music studio in Hoboken, New Jersey and features "infectious and hook-laden" tracks that eschew the "traditional guitar/bass/drums lineup in favour of idiosyncratic horn arrangements".

What's more, the duo will embark on a Fall tour of North America to promote the album. "We'll be doing these songs and a bunch of songs that we suspect people will know, with a group that includes eight brass players, a keyboardist and a drummer," says David Byrne.
