David Byrne & Fatboy Slim feat. Santigold
The first track to emerge from the highly anticipated Here Lies Love, a concept double-album from David Byrne and Fatboy Slim based on the life of the so-called “Iron Butterfly” Imelda Marcos, ‘Please Don’t’ is a brilliantly danceable slice of electro-funk fronted by the ever-fantastic Santi White. Her characteristically expressive vocal is sufficiently addictive to make the words seem almost irrelevant. But listen closely, though, and the song presents an intriguing snapshot of the overall song cycle, namedropping the likes of Ronald Reagan, Richard Nixon, Henry Kissinger and Fidel Castro. The full release, featuring a huge array of top female talent (Tori Amos, Cyndi Lauper, Camille, Sia and many more), is out February 22 through Nonesuch, and we can’t wait. MP3 after the jump.
