St. Vincent and David Byrne are streaming another track from their collaborative album Love This Giant. Along with the album opener “Who”, you can now hear the track “Weekend in the Dust” at the duo’s website.

In a fan newsletter, the duo said “Weekend in the Dust” was one of 10 album tracks written collaboratively. “David came up with some brass riffs and swells that sounded pretty funky. Annie then wrote a cool vocal melody with words over it. We both arranged her vocal and other elements of the track a bit further—still working with horn samples temporarily. Finally, we passed this one on to baritone sax monster Lenny Pickett, ex Tower Of Power and current Borneo Horns and SNL bandleader, for arranging.”

Love This Giant will be released on September 11th via 4AD/Todo Mundo. Fans who pre-order the album now will receive an instant download of “Weekend in the Dust”, as well as a digital copy of the album one day prior to its official release. Click here for more information.
