David Byrne and St. Vincent Collaborate

“Eight or So” Songs Already in the Works

David Byrne reported from his website journal this week, via Pitchfork, that he is currently doing some writing with St. Vincent‘s Annie Clark. Byrne sat in with Clark at her January 29th show at the Allen Room in New York, where the pair performed a song they had previously worked up. But Byrne now reports that there are “eight or so” songs currently in some stage of collaborative development. Due to Clark’s current touring commitments, the project has been proceeding in “fits and starts,” but it seems that at least one song is already largely developed. At her suggestion, the pair is even working with a brass ensemble.

Of course, Byrne is no stranger to collabs. His last album, 2008’s Everything That Happens Will Happen Today, was a collaboration with Brian Eno, and he has a new LP with Fatboy Slim, entitled Here Lies Love, out on Todomundu/Nonesuch on April 6th. Byrne sheds some light on the creative processes behind those albums as well in his journal entry. Interestingly, Fatboy Slim’s Norman Cook goes by “Norm,” which brings to mind more of the loveable Cheers lug than the electro pioneer, but I digress.

If those weren’t enough, Byrne also talked about how he’s working with TV on the Radio producer Dave Sitek, Petra Haden, and Yuka Honda.

As for the Byrne/Clark tracks, there is no timetable for their release, or even for their eventual completion, but Byrne has admitted to arranging some brass and even sending Clark some lyrics. Here’s hoping the two can find some time in the not-too-distant future. (www.davidbyrne.com / www.ilovestvincent.com)
