David Byrne and Bonnie “Prince” Billy Collaborate for Soundtrack
Former Talking Heads frontman David Byrne and Will Oldham, also known as Bonnie “Prince” Billy, have recorded five tracks together under the moniker The Pieces Of Shit. These collaboration songs will appear on the soundtrack to Italian director Paolo Sorrentino’s forthcoming film, This Must Be The Place, which takes its name from the Talking Heads’ song of the same name. The film is scheduled to hit theaters April 6 and the soundtrack will be released April 23 through Moshi Moshi Records.
This Must Be The Place tells the story of Cheyenne, a retired goth musician portrayed by Sean Penn, and his mission to hunt down a Nazi criminal who ordered his father’s execution in a concentration camp during the war.
