so what about this... i♥it.

Here Lies Love is an upcoming concept album slated for release in February 23, 2010, made in collaboration between David Byrne and Fatboy Slim, about the life of the former First Lady of the Philippines, Imelda Marcos and her relationship with a servant from her childhood.
The album will feature 22 guest vocalists that include Santigold, Cyndi Lauper, Roisin Murphy, Sharon Jones, Alice Russell, Martha Wainwright and Tori Amos and it is expected to be released by Nonesuch Records.

“The story I am interested in is about asking what drives a powerful person—what makes them tick? How do they make and then remake themselves? I thought to myself, wouldn’t it be great if—as this piece would be principally composed of clubby dance music—one could experience it in a club setting? Could one bring a ‘story’ and a kind of theater to the disco? Was that possible? If so, wouldn’t that be amazing!”-David Byrne

i personally want to know more about Imelda and her family.
