INFO: Norman Cook, aka Fat Boy Slim, is no stranger to high-profile collaborations. But his latest project might just take the cake. In fact, it does… like totally.
As we told you back in October, Cook and David Byrne have once again teamed up for a rather unique project. Following in the footsteps ofThe Brighton Port Authority’s I Think We’re Gonna Need a Bigger Boat, the legendary duo hit the studio with a number of other high-profile musicians for a concept album based on the life of former first lady of the Philippines Imelda Marcos — you know, the chick with all the shoes.
