David Byrne & St. Vincent premiere ‘Weekend in the Dust’


David Byrne & St. Vincent are previewing their new album, ‘Love This Giant’ (Tuesday, Sept. 11, 4AD), with an exclusive stream of “Weekend in the Dust” today at www.lovethisgiant.com. 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 the site. All pre-ordered albums will arrive digitally by email on Monday, Sept. 10, one day before release, and all physical music will arrive by Tuesday, Sept. 11.

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; the energy is infectious.
