David Byrne has gifted us with a new Christmas original titled, Fat Man’s Comin’.
The former Talking Heads frontman wrote the song back in 2012 while working on the collaborative album, Love This Giant with St. Vincent.
“I always wanted to write a holiday song,” said Byrne in a statement (via Consequence). “I wouldn’t call it a Christmas song, as the visitation of Santa (formerly known as St. Nicholas, who mainly did punishing) seems to have evolved to be a more secular consumer moment than a religious or spiritual affair.”
Today David Byrne released a new holiday song, “Fat Man’s Comin’,” exclusively through Bandcamp Friday, a monthly initiative where all proceeds are directed to artists (and their causes). https://t.co/HxiVcZIAkN pic.twitter.com/2hWKggnCQq— David Byrne's American Utopia on Broadway (@americanutopia) December 2, 2022
