David Byrne and St. Vincent to Continue Touring in Support of Love This Giant


Obviously, David Byrne and St. Vincent enjoyed the touring they did in support of their 2012 album Love This Giant, so much so that they are going to continue this summer.

The duo will play a series of North American shows in June and July before moving on to the U.K. and Europe later in the summer.

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. The album centres around an explosive brass band and is propelled by John Congleton's drum programming.

"There was no delineating what the roles were," explains Clark of the recording. "It's a collaboration I'm truly proud of."

The duo also split lyrical and vocal duties on the record, which despite eschewing a traditional guitar/bass/drums line-up in favor of idiosyncratic horn arrangements, presents itself as infectious and modern hook-laden rock.
