In advance of the unlikely pair’s new album, David Byrne and St. Vincent revealed the first video for their collaborative project set to release on September 11th. Three years in the making, what started as a one-off charity collaboration developed into a full-scale catalog of material and a longstanding friendship. Based on this first track, it sounds like this project will bare some real musical fruit complete with lots of brass and funky syncopated rhythms. After all these years, Byrne hasn’t lost a step as his vocals sound almost identical to the way they did in his prime and even his dance moves still got it. It’ll be interesting to see how St. Vincent complements Byrne throughout the recording.
