Former Talking Heads mastermind David Byrne has had a history of collaboration; throughout his career, he has worked with artists like Brian Eno, Devo, and Dirty Projectors. Now we can add St. Vincent’s Annie Clark to the mix.
This September, Byrne and Clark will release Love This Giant, a collaborative album that has been in the works for two years. The two will also go on an American tour in the fall.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, Clark said that the collaboration came about when they two played a benefit show together in New York City. “We started writing and we just kept writing and writing,” Clark said. “It just evolved to become this much bigger thing.”
Clark also added that David Byrne was “the coolest person on the planet.”
Love This Giant is slated to come out on September 11th on 4AD. In the meantime, you can download the album track “Who” by clicking the link below:
