Here Lies Love

How did we miss this one? Earlier this year David Byrne and Fatboy Slim teamed up to release Here Lies Love, a concept album about Imelda Marcos and her relationship with her nanny Estrella Cumpas. Sounds bizzare but strangely works really well. The list of singers on the album is like a who's who of Disko Dollies: Cyndi Lauper, Tori Amos, Sia, Roisin Murphy, Florence Welch, Santigold, Martha Wainwright, Kate Pierson - the list goes on. Tori and Cyndi get together to duet on Why Don't You Love Me which is crying out for a dance mix for the clubs. Click here to listen to clips.
