Listen: David Byrne & St. Vincent – “Weekend In The Dust”

As reported back in June David Byrne and St. Vincent will be releasing a full collaborative album which the pair has been working on since 2009. The two artists were originally approached by Housing Works with the aim of performing a concert for charity, but it was eventually decided after a bond was formed between them that a full LP would be even better. Love This Giant, is the result and it will be released by 4AD on September 11th .  “Weekend In The Dust” is our second taste of the record, and while it’s not as compelling as “Who” it does show us that Annie and David are trying a variety of things as we get something bouncy, funky, and a little retro with this one.
