Strangely Magical Overtones From Two of My Musical Heroes
THIS WEEK I’ve been pretty excited about the upcoming David Byrne & Brian Eno collaboration, Everything That Happens Will Happen Today, which will be available on their web site on August 18th, streaming (for free) and also “available for purchase as both a download and in physical formats.”
As Byrne says on the website, it’s their first collaboration “in about 30 years.” He claims that “for the most part” Eno did the music, while Byrne wrote some tunes, words and sang.
I agree with him when he says “It’s familiar but completely new as well.”
The “single” that’s been capturing my heart and mind (and feet) of late is called “Strange Overtones” and you can get an mp3 sent to you when you register your email address with the site.
Good news also, that Byrne will do a major tour this fall, and promises to perform material from the new album as well as music from his previous collaborations with Eno, including, he says, “3 Talking Heads albums, Bush of Ghosts, etc.”
There’s more info on the website.
