Please don’t

On the evidence of this track it sounds like David Byrne, the most exciting performer (and songwriter) of the late seventies, is back with a big new album, this time working with Fatboy Slim, and on this track with singer Santigold.  You can find much more information at DavidByrne.com.

The album (for want of a better word) is an examination of power through the story of Imelda Marcos (!), though Byrne insists there’s no mention of the shoes. On this track most of the lyrics are lifted from interviews and quotations.
