Tori will be touring in 2014 to support the release of Unrepentant Geraldines. The European legs runs from May through June and the North American legs spans July and August. We do not know if additional dates elsewhere will be added.
Back in the Spring of 2008, the first whiffs of Tori’s involvement in the studio recording of David Byrne’s Here Lies Love, a song cycle about the Philippines’ former first lady Imelda Marcos, emerged. Since then, there has been the occasional update from David on his journal as well as some reports about the album from the British music press.
In April, the BBC spoke with David about the project, when he revealed that the album was a collaboration with Fatboy Slim (who contributed to the original and confirmed the involvement of Tori and several other vocalists.
More recently, the BBC and NME both reported on the record, quoting collaborator Fatboy Slim (aka Norman Cook) about the record and the other guest vocalists. According to Cook, while its sound would not be “hugely experimental,” it wouldn’t be straight-ahead either and was, in part, inspired by dance music. He also discussed some of the reasons why progress on the recording was slow but indicated that it would be released sometime in the next six months.
The album is yet to appear on Nonesuch Records’ website but we’ll keep an eye out and post when we hear a release date has been announced.
Thanks to Evan Careclakis, Mark Manchen, Socrates Dinos and ChadwickY for keeping on top of this!
