Shopping For Records #22: Here Lies Love

I realize that I’m on a multitude of mailing lists for news, updates and information from music resources, labels and artists, but it’s always cool to see a name like David Byrne staring back at you from your inbox.



Late February will see the release of a collaborative effort with Fatboy Slim entitled, Here Lies Love, which is about Imelda Marcos and her caretaker, Estrella Campus. It’s a double-CD and DVD set with a hundred-page booklet that, in Byrne’s words, “explains it all.” Some of the vocalists enlisted for this album are: Florence Welch (of Florence + The Machine), Sia, Santigold, Nellie McKay, Sharon Jones, St. Vincent, and Róisín Murphy.

It’s Byrne: I’ll give it shot.

Sincerely,
Letters From A Tapehead
