Imelda Slim

What does Queen of all things footwear, Imelda Marcos and Fatboy Slim have in common?
Well a lot as of very recently.

Norman Cook (aka Fatboy Slim) is working with Talking Heads lead David Byrne on a concept album about the life of the former first lady of the Philippines.

According to Cook: “Each track is sung by a different singer and there's some very interesting guests on there” which is very exciting when you consider some of the artists rumoured to be taking part.

Although unconfirmed it looks like we will be having Candie, Sharon Jones, Santigold, Tori Amos, Martha Wainwright and Cyndi Lauper.

Can you imagine what will happen with all that talent on one album? I am hoping the results will be as orgasmic as the line up of singer with the talent of Cook.

It will be dance based, but will tell the story of Marcos, ala ‘Evita’.
Apparently it is not just about shoes.
Now that would be a challenge. An album all about shoes.
