LOOK: David Byrne and St. Vincent Announce Collaborative Album and Joint Tour; Download Single “Who”

It’s always pretty exciting whenever David Byrne announces anything, but this most recent statement really got us going, seeing as he’s collaborating with one of the most talented songwriters of recent years: Annie Clark, better known by her moniker St. Vincent. The two will be releasing a full-length LP, entitled Love This Giant, set to be released September 11th via 4AD and Byrne’s own label, Todo Mundo.

And there’s more! The duo will also be departing on a fairly extensive North American tour, scanning East to West in fair proportions, which will undoubtedly be an impressive showcase—seeing the two on stage together. These two have been a major focus for us over the past few years: we interviewed Clark about her 2011 album Strange Mercy back in FILTER 45, and David Byrne made it to the front cover all the way back in FILTER 28.

You can download their first single, “Who,” for free, just below. Tracklist and tour dates follow.
