David Byrne And St. Vincent Give Away Free EP

David Bryne and St. Vincent, who came together for one of last year’s best albums, Love This Giant, are sharing the wealth of their creative joining with a free EP of material with two remixes, two live cuts and one song that did not make the original album.

On the Love This Giant website, they wrote:

After the release of Love This Giant last year, we did a tour of North America and Australia that was like nothing we’ve ever done before—drums, keys and Annie and I supported by 8 choreographed brass players. We did the new material, but also a lot of recognizable songs, arranged for that group. The sound is incredible, and it’s a bit of a visual spectacle as well. We were pretty excited at how it turned out. The critical and audience response was great too! Touring a group that size with a fairly complex show is a big financial gulp, so it has taken us a while to collect enough offers in North America and Europe, but ow they are in and we kick off in a few weeks.

One of our business folks had the idea that we might offer a taste of what we’re up to—so we put together an EP to give folks a taste of what to expect. It has one song that didn’t make it on the record (a waltz featuring some lovely glass harmonica), a couple of energized remixes of some of the album tunes and two live tracks of the sort of more familiar material we do in the set. Did we say it’s FREE? We’re very excited at how this whole project came out so we want more folks to discover it.

The track list:

  • Cissus (previously unreleased)
  • I Should Watch TV (M. Stine Remix)
  • Lightning (Kent Rockafeller Remix)
  • Marrow (live)
  • Road To Nowhere (live)
