David Byrne and St. Vincent are planning another hefty slate of tour dates in support of their 2012 collaborative album, Love This Giant, and in advance of the upcoming trek, the visionary duo have shared a new EP that's available for download right now. The five-track Brass Tactics EP collects one previously unreleased song from the Giant sessions ("Cissus"), two remixes (alternate takes on "I Should Watch TV" and "Lightning"), and two live tracks (St. Vincent's "Marrow" and the Talking Heads' "Road to Nowhere"). 

On June 12, Byrne and Annie Clark will play a show in Montclair, New Jersey, kicking off a summer tour that will bring them across North America and Europe. The international excursion — which includes stops at Bonnaroo and 80/35 Festival — wraps in Florence, Italy on September 12.
