Listen Up: Cyndi Lauper and Tori Amos Pair Up For David Byrne





David Byrne: "big suit" wearer, architectural instrumenteur... Filipino royalty enthusiast? If it means more Cyndi Lauper/Tori Amos duets, we're in.

The Talking Heads frontman, along with DJ Fatboy Slim, presents Here Lies Love—out April 6—a collaboration fittingly rife with indie rock royals: Florence and the Machine, St. Vincent, Santigold, and more. The concept album details the life of Imelda Marcos, wife of ex-Phillippines prez Ferdinand Marcos (and her affair with a servant—scandalous!). Get a taste with Lauper and Amos' contribution "Why Don't You Love Me," shown above. The unlikely duo mixes 80s electro-pop instrumentals and energetic vocals with an extravagance that mirrors the Filipino queen's own. Girl had 3,000 pairs of shoes! (via Idolator)
