We heard David Byrne take lead vox for most of the opening track last month, but today St. Vincent’s Annie Clark is front and center for the latest preview of the pair’s new album, Love This Giant. While the Dap-Kings interlaced a steady of groove on “Who” with melodic flourishes, this one finds the Brooklyn horn group driving a boisterous rhythm section. Feeling some mid-’80s Prince influence here, from the band holding on tight to a half-sampled beat to Clark’s double-tracked, upper-register vocal. Either way, Byrne and St. Vincent can really bring the funk. Spin it above.
Love This Giant arrives on September 11th via 4AD.
