[News] St. Vincent and David Byrne Announce 'Love This Giant', Fall Tour Dates

It's been known for quite some time that Annie Clark of St. Vincent and David Byrne have been working on a collaborative album together, and today all the details about the project have been unveiled. The collaborative LP is titled Love This Giant and will be released on September 11th via 4AD/Todo Mundo. The 12-track effort was recorded primarily at Water Music studio in Hoboken, New Jersey, with the Dap-Kings and Antibalas serving as a brass section for the song "The One Who Broke Your Heart."

The project is described as “infectious and hook-laden”with “a traditional guitar/bass/drums lineup in favor of idiosyncratic horn arrangements.” Annie Clarke stated that "[t]here was no delineating what the roles were. It’s a collaboration I’m truly proud of.”
