American singer-songwriter St. Vincent has told Rolling Stone magazine that a collaboration between her and Talking Heads’ David Bryne is due out soon.
The collaboration came about after the pair both attended a Bjork and Dirty Projectors’ charity show and were subsequently both approached about working on a project together. They agreed to the project, bunkered down in a studio in New York, and began to record. St. Vincent, real name Annie Erin Clark, told the magazine that “We just started writing and kept writing and writing. It just evolved into a much bigger thing. David Byrne is the coolest person on the planet”.
St Vincent is currently in California playing Coachella Festival over this and next weekend. After the festival, St. Vincent will begin touring the world before the release of this collaboration.
We should then be expecting a collaborative tour from St Vincent and David Bryne at the end of this year. It is unknown if this will just consist of a select few American dates, but fingers crossed it will make its way down to Australia.
