Back in 2010, David Byrne and Fatboy Slim collaborated on the concept album and “disco musical” Here Lies Love, which tells the story of former First Lady of the Philippines, Imelda Marcos. Following award-winning runs in New York, London, and Adelaide, Australia, the project has now arrived in Seattle, with performances running through May 28th at the Seattle Repertory Theater. None other than David Byrne himself has been working intimately with the creative team to revamp the production for the new location and cast. In a chat with DJ John Richards, host of The Morning Show on KEXP, Byrne talks about the inspiration for the project, the logistics of bringing the show to town, and what music means to him. Watch or listen below.
