More information on the story I broke right here on newtunes.com (after reading it in a few other places).
David Byrne is, indeed, touring this fall on the strength of Everything That Happens Will Happen Today, which comes out August 18th. Unfortunately, he will not be touring with Brian Eno, as originally reported.
Byrne will be playing songs from current and past Eno collaborations, which means music from three early Talking Heads albums and My Life In the Bush of Ghosts.
You can hear the first single from the album, “Strange Overtones,” by going to everythingthathappens.com and downloading it. There’s also a video from David Byrne introducing the album and tour.
Here’s the dates of the tour. Thankfully, he’ll be coming to the Pabst in Milwaukee. I’m hoping to catch him there and in San Francisco. It promises to be a great tour.
