St Vincent have collaborated with former Talking Heads' singer David Byrne on a new album.

Annie Clark, who goes by the name of St Vincent, revealed in an interview with Rolling Stone that the pair have recorded an album together.

The collaboration came about when Clark and Byrne met each other in May 2009 at a Bjork/Dirty Projectors charity show and were approached about working on a similar project.

After agreeing to the idea, the pair reconvened in a New York studio to begin working on the album. As they began writing material, it quickly became apparent that there was a creative chemistry between them both.

Clark revealed:

We just started writing and kept writing and writing. It just evolved into a much bigger thing. David Byrne is the coolest person on the planet

According to Clark, she plans to release the new material in the autumn, before heading out on a tour to support the album with David Byrne.

St Vincent last night (April 14) performed at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, California.

The first weekend of two consecutive Coachella festivals closes today. Check back tomorrow to read a report from day three of the festival, which will see performances from Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg, as well with At The Drive-In, Justice and Florence And The Machine. The entire line-up then returns to the site next weekend (April 20-22).
