David Byrne & Brian Eno Announce Album Details

Eno & Byrne
David Byrne and Brian Eno have finished their first collaboration in almost 30 years. The "electronic gospel" album is called Everything That Happens Will Happen Today. The majority of the album features Eno on the music and Byrne focusing on words and singing. Byrne says, "It's familiar but completely new as well. We're pretty excited." On August 4, the song "Strange Overtones" will be offered as a free download on and on August 18 the full album will be available for purchase as both a download and in physical formats as well as free streaming.

In September Byrne will begin a tour in support of the release. He will be playing music from the new album as well as music from he and Eno's previous collaborations - three Talking Heads albums, Bush of Ghosts, etc. To keep up to date on the tour and album, sign up for the mailing list at

I don't believe Eno will Be on any of these tour dates so far.... That's a bummer. Wait and see I guess.
