Listen: St. Vincent and David Byrne - “Weekend in the Dust”

New Track Off Collaborative LP Love This Giant

Jul 30, 2012 St. Vincent Bookmark and Share

Following the free giveaway of their opening track “Who,” St. Vincent and David Byrne continue to sample pieces of their forthcoming joint album Love This Giant with a stream of a new track called “Weekend in the Dust.” In a note from St. Vincent’s Annie Clark, “David came up with some brass riffs and swells that sounded pretty funky. then wrote a cool vocal melody with words over it. We both arranged [my] vocal and other elements of the track a bit further—still working with horn samples temporarily. Finally, we passed this one on to baritone sax monster Lenny Pickett, ex Tower Of Power and current Borneo Horns and SNL bandleader, for arranging. Enjoy!”

Due out Sept. 11, pre-orders of the upcoming record will receive an instant download of the new track, as well as a digital copy of the album a full day prior to its official release. Click here to listen and view your purchase options.
