David Byrne and Fatboy Slim, whose musical Here Lies Love is now on Broadway, were on ABC’s Nightline to discuss the show, which host Juju Chang calls an “immersive and electrifying telling” of the rise and fall of the Philippines’ notorious Imelda Marcos and the People Power Revolution, and the importance of the historic all-Filipino cast. You can watch the piece here:

The original 2010 double-disc song cycle of Here Lies Love was released on vinyl for the first time last month to coincide with the new Broadway production. The recording features a dream cast drawn from the worlds of indie rock, alt country, R&B, and pop, including Florence Welch, Cyndi Lauper, Steve Earle, Sharon Jones, Natalie Merchant, Tori Amos, Kate Pierson, St. Vincent, My Brightest Diamond, Nellie McKay, Martha Wainwright, Róisín Murphy, Santigold, and Byrne himself. “Ingenious,” said the New York Times. “Insidiously infective songs.” You can get it on vinyl and hear it here.
