David Byrne previews Joan of Arc musical with new song - LISTEN

As already reported,  Talking Heads frontman David Byrne has written a contemporary musical focused on Joan of Arc titled "Saint Joan" - it's set to premiere in New York City in February of 2017.

The musician, during his own radio show called David Byrne Radio, recently shared another track taken from "Saint Joan"; it's called "Send Her to Heaven", it was recorded using a cell phone, and it tells the story of how Joan of Arc’s mother fought to clear her daughter’s name, a narrative which also forms the basis of the musical, according to Byrne.
