FREE STUFF: David Byrne & St Vincent – Who

David-Byrne-St-Vincent-Love-This-Giant-e1339693388825

Oh, David. What a long and illustrious career you’ve woven for yourself out there. From the spectacular Talking Heads (Naked doesn’t count, primarily because I don’t like it so there) through a myriad of solo and collaborative efforts too numerous to mention, you’re pretty much the bestest Phillip Schofield impersonator in the entire world. So what’s a genius to do, when he teams up with musician-i’m-not-massively-fond-of-but-have-to-include-in-this-discussion-anyway St Vincent for a new album? Naturally, he agrees to resurrect the nuts-0-clock horn section from your time forgotten but wildly underrated Knee Plays LP, before throwing in a jot of Everything That Happens Will Happen Today lyricism at it, and calling it a fine day indeed.

The song’s available to stream above and if you find yourself enamored, you can download the track for nothing at all over at this link. Here’s a tracklisting.
