St. Vincent and David Byrne Announce New Record and Tour.
It's been about two years since the news first leaked that Dallas native Annie Clark (St. Vincent) and David Byrne (Talking Heads), himself no stranger to our city, would be working on a new record together. And now — finally — the twosome has something to show for their efforts.
Today, Byrne and Clark announced that their collaborative, John Congleton-produced record, called Love This Giant, would earn its release on September 11 (awkward) and that the release will be immediately followed by a tour featuring a full brass backing band. The tour will hit Dallas on Sunday, October 7, at McFarlin Auditorium.
As if this news weren't exciting enough, the twosome has bolstered it today by releasing a free download of their album's lead single, “Who.”
It sounds pretty much exactly like what you'd expect a St. Vincent-David Byrne collaboration bolstered by a brass band to sound like, which is to say pretty darn great.
