LOVE THIS GIANT
Here’s some news that’s music to my ears! Frontman for the talking heads, David Byrne, and Annie Clark (AKA St Vincent) have teamed up to make Love This Giant – a collaborative album, featuring keyboards, drums, guitars, and an eight-piece brass section.
“The writing was truly collaborative: sometimes Annie would send me some synthesized versions of brass or guitar riffs and I would arrange them a bit and write a tune and words over them; other times this process would be reversed and I would send some musical ideas to Annie for her to write over. This material would get passed back and forth—each of us adding and elaborating on it. We both had other records and tours in the works, so this project was done in fits and starts, and each series of recording sessions involved a lot of players. It was an education that involved figuring out the variety of sounds and approaches one could come up with using more or less the same group makeup on every song—we could go funky or majestic with the exact same band.” (David)
