Update #3

A gift for you, from Matteo and David Byrne

Comment

Hello, backers!

To celebrate passing the 10-days-to-go mark, we thought we'd record a little something, partially as a gift to you for being so generous (really, the support we've gotten for this project has been incredibly humbling), and partially as a web-savvy 21st Century viral marketing campaign, devised by our PR team. 

Well, okay, we don't have a PR team (I don't even really know what that means). We do, however, hope you'll like our cover of the tenderest love song ever written for a lamp: Talking Heads' This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody).

Thank you all so much! 

Love,
Matteo
