Produced by Beck and with some backing vocals on the track too, this could go down as one of the coolest releases of the year so far.

‘Life During Wartime’ (No, it is not a Talking Heads’ cover) is from the OST for Todd SolondzLife During Wartime movie. Interestingly, neither of the to luminaries you hear on the track actually wrote it. That particular credit goes to both the director (the words), and the movie’s composer, Marc Shaiman (the music)

The tune is a nice, wispy walk through the annals of history. Or something.
