David Byrne’s Here Lies Love

What do Tori Amos, Nellie McKay, Sia, St Vincent, Steve Earle, Natalie Merchant, Cyndi Lauper and more all have in common?

They are all featured vocalists on the upcoming 2CD/1DVD concept album by David Byrne and Fatboy SlimHere Lies Love (due out 23 Feb 2010).  They had me at Tori Amos and Nellie McKay… then the list kept going.  My dad claims that “crap isn’t holy,” but quite frankly, I beg to differ.  “Holy crap” is a primo utterance afforded upon this new album.

The concept… “Here Lies Love presents Imelda Marcos meditating on events in her life, from her childhood spent in poverty and her rise to power to her ultimate departure from the palace. In particular, the production looks at the relationship between Imelda and a servant from her childhood, Estrella Cumpas, who appeared at key moments in Imelda’s life.
