David Byrne & St. Vincent released Brass Tactics EP on May 28 for free download on http://lovethisgiant.com/brasstactics/#.UaUcPBj-Dwg. The EP features unreleased, live and remixed songs from their collaborative album, ‘Love This Giant’ (4AD / Todo Mundo) and is out just before the duo hit to road together again for two months of North American dates. The tour kicks off on June 12 at the Wellmont Theatre in Montclair, NJ and includes a stop at Bonnaroo on June 16. David Byrne wrote a blog about the EP and tour; read the post on http://lovethisgiant.com/brasstactics/#.UaUcPBj-Dwg See below for the EP tracklist and tour dates.

Called “marvelous” by the New Yorker and “magical” by NPR, the duo’s album, ‘Love This Giant’, and tour last year earned rave reviews from TIME, New York Magazine, the NY Times, SPIN, and more, along with performances on Letterman, Fallon, and Colbert. The LA Times called their performance “jubilant,” The Washington Post described it as “a kind of show you’d never seen or heard before,” and the Hollywood Reporter praised their “amazing charisma.”

“Cissus” (Previously Unreleased Album Track)
“I Should Watch TV” (M. Stine Remix)
