New David Byrne/St. Vincent record + Byrne book

On September 3, 2012 by Will Hermes

David Byrne’s collaboration with Annie “St. Vincent” Clark — yup, the one with the freaky cover — is streaming at NPR Music.

Love This Giant is kinda like a science fair project, centered around a brass band (something Byrne first tried for his 1985 Music For “The Knee Plays”), riddled with the duo’s tandem guitars and shifty programmed beats. It’s out Sept. 11.

Byrne’s new book, How Music Works, is out tomorrow via McSweeney’s, the same day as the LGTBOF paperback.
