David Byrne and St. Vincent | NPR MUSIC LIVE

St. Vincent (the stage name for Annie Clark) has released a new album this month, so it’s a good opportunity to focus on some of her past work. This video was recorded on a tour supporting the album Love This Giant, which Annie made in collaboration with David Byrne of The Talking Heads. But this tour brings things to a new level, with the addition of a spunky backing band. The resulting show has a sense of triumphant playfulness, as the backing band bobs back and forth in a choreographed dance. Stay for the big finish, a jazzy show-stopping take on “Burnin’ Down the House.”
