David Byrne has announced a new album with Brian Eno, Everything That Happens Will Happen Today, and a concert tour to promote it. Video below, after the jump!
This is exciting news. Eno and Byrne’s last collaboration, My Life In The Bush Of Ghosts, was 20 years ahead of its time and any new collaboration is sure to be interesting.
Here’s Byrne’s announcement, via their site for the release:
Brian Eno and I recently finished our first collaboration in about 30 years. For the most part, Brian did the music and I wrote some tunes, words and sang. It’s familiar but completely new as well. We’re pretty excited. In August the music will be available via this Web site, free for streaming and it will also be available for purchase as both a download and in physical formats. One of the songs will be available free of charge.
In September I will begin a tour, on which I will be playing music from the new album as well as music from our previous collaborations – 3 Talking Heads albums, Bush of Ghosts, etc. If you’d like to be updated as this story unfolds, please add your email address via the box below (we will not contact you for any reason other than to tell you about this David Byrne and Brian Eno project and the tour and we promise not to give or sell your contact to anyone else or even to the government).
If you’re a Byrne or Eno fan, let me know what you think of the news!
Note to David Byrne: autoplay is evil!
