HERE LIES LOVE  is the revolutionary musical experience from David Byrne and Fatboy Slim that's being called “A LIFE-GIVING, ROOF-RAISING, BOOTY-SHAKING BLAST OF PURE JOY!” (Vogue). This thrillingly immersive show retraces the astonishing journey of Filipina First Lady Imelda Marcos from her meteoric rise to power to her descent into infamy and the People Power Revolution. An adrenaline-fueled, 360-degree multimedia spectacle, HERE LIES LOVE  blends the passion of politics with heart-pounding dance beats for an exhilarating and completely unmissable event. Alex Timbers (Rocky, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson) directs this never-seen-anything-like-it production. POWER TO THE PARTY!

Through an exhilarating series of songs written by David Byrne, with musical contributions from Fatboy Slim (Norman Cook), Songs from Here Lies Love presents the infamous Imelda Marcos meditating on events in her life, from her childhood spent in poverty and her rise to First Lady of the Philippines to her ultimate departure from the palace.

This thrilling concept album blends an incredible true story of power and politics with electrifying music and features vocals from some of music’s most innovative singers, including Cyndi Lauper, Tori Amos, Sharon Jones, Nellie McKay, Florence Welch (of Florence + The Machine), St. Vincent, Steve Earle and Allison Moorer, Martha Wainwright, Sia, Santigold and Roisin Murphy.

Featuring music by David Byrne and Fatboy Slim as performed by the critically acclaimed 2013 Public Theater cast of the Here Lies Love musical.

This album from Nonesuch Records is available digitally and as a two CD set. The physical copy of the recording includes a 80-page full-color book with lyrics, credits, an introduction by Public Theater director Oskar Eustis and two essays about the creation of the piece by Byrne.

We’ve taken the exhilarating soundtrack of this hit immersive musical and created over 40 minutes of energetic and exciting dance mixes. Music editor Matt Stine and music director Justin Levine have incorporated elements from the show, the all-star recording and even some songs written for the production but never used. This four-panel album features 14 remixes, presented as one continuous track, and it’s printed on a rainbow-reflective mirror board to remind us of the disco balls Imelda loved. It’s seamless, non-stop, heart-pounding fun and all profits from the sales go to Gawad Kalinga, an organization based in the Philippines that aims to end poverty for 5 million families by 2024.
