David Byrne & St. Vincent - David Byrne & St. Vincent Unveil New Track, 'Weekend In The Dust'
David Byrne & St. Vincent : David Byrne & St. Vincent Unveil New Track, 'Weekend In The Dust'
30th July 2012

David Byrne & St. Vincent are previewing their new album, Love This Giant' (out Sept. 11th), with an exclusive stream of 'Weekend in the Dust' here or at the foot of this page. The track is available for instant download with all pre-orders of 'Love This Giant,' which will be available digitally as well as on CD and LP via their website - http://lovethisgiant.com/. All pre-ordered albums will arrive digitally by email on Monday, September 10th, one day before release, and all physical music will arrive by September 11th.  

Recorded over two years largely at Water Music in Hoboken, NJ, Love This Giant is a collaboration in the truest sense of the word, with Byrne and St. Vincent (aka Annie Clark) co-writing ten of the album’s twelve tracks, and each artist penning one song individually. Co-produced by Patrick Dillett and John Congleton, the songs are all built around an explosive brass band core.
