Listen to WGD playwright Young Jean Lee's band Future Wife perform songs from the show below. The album, like the immensely acclaimed live show on which it’s based, is a life-affirming work, comprising a cycle of songs and personal stories about the one thing we all have in common. Unlike the live show—the original production, which featured Young Jean Lee performing all of the monologues—the album invites some of Young Jean’s musician friends to tell the stories, including David Byrne, Laurie Anderson, Kathleen Hanna (Bikini Kill, Le Tigre, Julie Ruin), Adam Horovitz (aka Ad-Rock of The Beatie Boys), Drew Daniel and Martin Schmidt (Matmos), Sarah Neufeld (Arcade Fire, Bell Orchestre), and Colin Stetson (Arcade Fire, Bon Iver), some of whom also contribute to the music.
