St Vincent and David Byrne complete album

In The Studio

St Vincent

St Vincent and David Byrne have completed work on their much anticipated collaborative album, which is due for release later this year. The pair are also expected to tour together in support of the release, which is nice.

The project was seeded when the two musicians met at a charity show three years ago. Hitting it off, they began working together. “We just started writing and kept writing and writing”, St Vincent, aka Annie Clark, told Rolling Stone this week. “It just evolved to become this much bigger thing”.

Announcing that recording was complete, Clark, tweeted last week: “Whew! Finished recording the David Byrne collaboration and now off to Mexico City to celebrate”.

That’s a good call, Mexico City has many great attractions. I hope they had time to check out the Catedral Metropolitana.
