Collaborators St. Vincent and David Byrne have released a second song from their forthcoming album Love This Giant. For those who pre-order the album, you will receive a high quality download of the song as well as as your download link for the album a day before the official release. If you’re not willing to make that commitment, you can still stream the album from the duo’s website, right here.
“Weekend in the Dust” features the vocals of St. Vincent’s Annie Clark (where the previous track “Who” relied more so on Byrne) and offers everything the album has claimed it would from the beginning, which is brassy melodies, a strong beat, and strange melodies. The electronic drums, brass, and dancey synths are an interesting amalgam that permeate the song’s abrupt shifts and funky changes. These first two cuts from the album are equally as powerful, and we can’t wait to hear the rest of it.
