Oh. My. Word.

Norman Cook, otherwise known as Fatboy Slim, is about to unleash a monster of EPIC, lady-like proportions.

Here Lies Love, Cook’s collaborative effort with Talking Heads member David Byrne, is a concept album based on the life of Imelda Marcos, the First Lady of the Philippines from the 1960’s to the 1980’s.

Can you handle it? Because I actually, quite literally, cannot.

Natalie Merchant! Florence! Róisín! Santi! Sia! Cyndi! SO GOOOOOD! Shaking and crying…shaking and crying.

What’s more is this quote from NME from Cook about the project: “Because the story is more about what was going on in [New York club] Studio 54 rather than what went on in the Philippines, we wanted to reflect that, so it’s kind of dance music based,” Cook told BBC 6 Music.

This is literally a dream come true…a very, very gay dream come true.
