Most of the excitement came when things got to a point where I’d go, ‘This is nothing like anything I would’ve come up with alone.’ It’s the whole point of collaboration. -David Byrne

It’s an honest-to-god, straight-down-the-middle thing. He wrote music, I wrote music; he wrote words, I wrote words. He sings half the songs, I wrote half the songs. I’ve never been that closely entwined in the songwriting, arranging, singing, and lyric-writing process with anyone.

I think I’ve reached the pinnacle of who I want to work with. -St. Vincent

The first official video from David Byrne and St. Vincent‘s collaborative album Love This Giant. The album, which is due out on September 11th, has been in the works for the past two-and-a-half years.

The predictably quirky and cinematic video was directed by Denmark’s Martin de Thurah.
