For those who have been following the album’s genesis, it’s finally almost here. St. Vincent and David Byrne (of Talking Heads, for those who don’t know), according to Rolling Stone, intended to release their long anticipated collaborative album this fall, and support it with a tour, to boot.
Speaking to Pitchfork, Annie Clark (St. Vincent) earlier revealed that the album was, “very split down the middle between who writes lyrics and who sings.” Only one song has been shown in any form thus far, “Two Ships”, played by an orchestra without vocals that Byrne has stated he intends to add. However, it does provide some insight into the brass ensemble the two have stated shall be involved.
This should be a very interesting album, and if the artists are willing to tour it, they clearly find it worth their time beyond completion. Stay tuned for more.
Plugging away since 1999, The National finally hit mainstream success with the release of their 2010 album High Violet. Of course, this entailed their first world tour, but in the new documentary Mistaken For Strangers, it’s only the backdrop for the relationship between lead singer Matt Berninger and his younger brother Tom, who had no idea that these short videos he was shooting would turn into a public document of their troubled, if still loving brotherhood.
