Byrne, the onetime leader of iconic new-wave/alt-rock band Talking Heads, has gone on to an eclectic and acclaimed solo career. In September, he and St. Vincent released a duo album called "Love This Giant." St. Vincent, a.k.a. Annie Clark, is a multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and singer with three solo albums who was once a member of the Polyphonic Spree.
According to today's announcement, "Love This Giant" "features a big brass band and big beats." A rave review from Huffington Post of a September concert describes a remarkable show featuring songs from the new album, solo material from both artists and some Talking Heads classics as well.
