Check Out: David Byrne & Will Oldham's contributions to This Must Be The Place

    As previously reported, David Byrne and Will Oldham (aka Bonnie “Prince” Billy) collaborated on music for Paolo Sorrentino’s recent film, This Must Be The Place. (You know, the one that stars Sean Penn as a Robert Smith-esque Nazi hunter. Yeah.) Now, the film’s soundtrack receives a tracklist and a handful of songs have hit the web (via TwentyFourBit).

    Dubbed The Pieces of Shit, the cinematic supergroup of sorts features Byrne and Oldham, alongside Irish singer-songwriter Michael Brunnock. The trio have five tracks on the album, one of which is a previous Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy tune (“Lay & Love”). But that’s not the only music featured in the film. Other notables on the soundtrack include Jónsi, Iggy Pop, and myriad renditions of the Talking Heads song from which the film takes its name.

    Check out three tunes by The Pieces of Shit below, including David Byrne’s live performance of the titular song. Also, stay tuned for more information, specifically a release date.
