St. Vincent and David Byrne announce collaborative record and tour, playing 3 NYC shows


It was in the stars. Sooner or later Annie Clark (a.k.a. St. Vincent) and former Talking Heads frontman David Bryne were going to collaborate on something. I would have guessed just a song or two, but Pitchfork has announced that the two artists will release an entire album entitled Love This Giant on 4AD/Todo Mundo on September 11.

There will also be a tour in support of the record, which will feature songs from the album in addition to both of their respective discographies. That tour will hit the Beacon Theatre on September 25 and 26 and then Williamsburg Park on September 29. Tickets for the Williamsburg Park show go on sale 6/22 at 12pm. All tour dates, a download for their song "Who" and the tracklisting for Love This Giant below…
