David Byrne Shares New Christmas Song Fat Man’s Comin’ on Bandcamp
I always wanted to write a holiday song, David Byrne writes in a statement about The Fat Man’s Comin’, which he just released for Bandcamp. 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.
Byrne co-produced the song with Jherek Bischoff, who did the song’s sweeping orchestral arrangements. It’s a bit of a “lost” track that Byrne says dates from when they worked on his album with St. Vincent. It’s definitely not your average holiday song — there are no sleigh bells or other standard season sounds. Instead, it’s an “old school creepy” neo-classical ode to “The funky man with the fur trimmed collar.” You can listen to the song and watch the video, featuring Byrne’s drawings, below. Proceeds from downloads benefits Byrne’s Reasons To Be Cheerful nonprofit online news magazine. Until the end of this year, The Fat Man’s Comin’ can be purchased for an amount of your choosing, with a $1 minimum price.
Here’s Byrne’s statement on the track:
I believe the foundation of this music might have been written at the same time as the collaboration I did with St. Vincent a few years ago, but somehow a literal view of the Santa phenomena was what came out. It wasn’t right for Annie and me – the story of a fat man in rather odd attire who breaks into people’s homes and leaves mysterious packages.
I’d worked with Jherek before and enlisted him to arrange and record the “orchestra,” which I wanted to sound sort of old-school creepy. The old song “Teddy Bears Picnic” may have been a reference.
Back then, I thought I’d use the song as a means to raise money for a good cause, but to draw attention to this thing I thought it might need a visual, so I storyboarded a video for the song which eventually ended up getting shelved.
But maybe helping celebrate another year of Reasons To Be Cheerful might be a good reason to resurrect this song, and let the storyboards allow folks to imagine what the video might have been.
Enjoy and thanks for listening/watching
Blink-182 Reuniting Classic Lineup With Tom DeLonge For 2023 World Tour and New Single
Mark Hoppus, Tom DeLonge and Travis Barker are back together for the first time in nearly a decade.
Tom DeLonge, Travis Barker and Mark Hoppus are reuniting as Blink-182 for the first time since 2015 for a new international tour. They announced a new tour in a funny video on Tuesday, filled with double entendres, in which fans expressed their desire to see the group come together.
Most exciting for fans, though, is word that a new single, EDGING, is coming on Friday (Oct. 14), commemorating the trio’s first time in the studio in 10 years.
DeLonge and Hoppus founded Blink-182 in 1992, and Barker joined as drummer in 1998. The band went on hiatus and explored side projects in 2005, with DeLonge focusing on his band Angels & Airwaves. They regrouped for a reunion tour and new music in 2009, but DeLonge left the band in 2015. Alkaline Trio’s Matt Skiba joined as a replacement, while DeLonge pursued his own music and studied UFOs, even executive producing History Channel’s “Unidentified: Inside America’s UFO Investigation.”
