Singer/songwriter/guitarist St. Vincent, who hails from Tulsa, and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer David Byrne, best known as the former frontman for the Talking Heads, performed last week on “The Colbert Report.”
The duo also sat down with host Stephen Colbert for an entertaining little interview in which they talked about Hurricane Sandy, brass bands and their collaborative album “Love This Giant.”
The album was recorded over two years largely at Water Music in Hoboken, N.J. and is billed as a true collaboration, with Byrne and St. Vincent (AKA Annie Clark) co-writing 10 of the album’s 12 tracks.
Each artist also penned one song individually. The album centers around an explosive brass band and is propelled by John Congleton’s drum programming.
Check out their performance of “Who” and “Weekend in the Dust”:
