Faber and Faber announced that in Spring 2020 they will publish Remain in Love, the memoir of Chris Frantz, founding member of seminal bands Talking Heads and Tom Tom Club.
Talking Heads started in the spring of ’73 with a line of cocaine and a long walk around the Rhode Island School of Design campus. Chris Frantz, Tina Weymouth and David Byrne wanted to play a different kind of music – dance music for smart kids. From a rough loft on Chrystie Street to legendary CBGB, to touring with the Ramones, The Pretenders, B-52’s, The Police, Dire Straits and many others, Talking Heads wrote the soundtrack for the punk and new wave movement. Chris Frantz remembers it all in thrilling detail and proposes a memoir as eclectic – and electrifying – as Talking Heads and Tom Tom Club.
Publication will fall around the time of the 40th anniversary of the release of Talking Heads’s masterpiece, Remain in Light.
