David Byrne has collaborated with St. Vincent (aka Annie Clark) with an amazing new album entitled Love This Giant.
The two toured heavily these past few months in support of their album. Byrne and Clark began their musical alliance after meeting in 2009 at the “Dark Was the Night” benefit at Radio City Music Hall. Shortly thereafter, they were approached by Housing Works Bookstore to perform together. Since then, they’ve had a professional relationship, allowing the two to share ideas and create a partnership that resulted in the new album.
Love This Giant was recorded over two years largely at Water Music in Hoboken, New Jersey. In addition to splitting vocal duties, Byrne and Clark co-wrote ten of the album’s twelve tracks, along with one song they penned individually.
“There was no delineating what the roles were,” said Clark in a press release. “It’s a collaboration I’m truly proud of.”
