Referencing Barack Obama in music is so 2009. That's why we're excited for David Byrne and Fatboy Slim's part-concept, part-tribute album to the first lady of the Phillippines, Imelda Marcos. The album which drops April 6th features a predominantly female cast of collaborators, from Florence and the Machine, Sharon Jones, to Santigold on the lead single "Please Don't." Here's the clip, choc-full of footage of Imelda the fashion icon running the map meeting former presidents and diplomats.
