David Byrne @ St Ann's Warehouse (more by Bao Nguyen)
David Byrne

David Byrne will embark on a six-month world tour starting September 16. The tour, titled "David Byrne, Songs of David Byrne and Brian Eno," will feature Byrne performing songs from his numerous collaborations with Brian Eno, including tracks from several Talking Heads albums produced by Eno, the pair's 1981 collaboration My Life in the Bush of Ghosts and their newest collaborative effort, Everything That Happens Will Happen Today. "The live shows will...try to draw a line linking this new material with what we did 30 years ago," explains Byrne. He will tour throughout the U.S. from the fall of '08 through early '09, Australasia in early '09 and Europe in March '09.

For the release of Everything That Happens Will Happen Today, everythingthathappens.com will offer listeners a free download to preview the album beginning today, August 4. On August 18 the entire record will be made available for sale as a digital download, exclusively from the site. Other formats available for pre order via the site will include an enhanced CD with download and a deluxe package CD with download featuring artwork by Stefan Sagmeister.

Byrne's current projects include music from season two of HBO's series Big Love; the upcoming Here Lies Love, a song cycle with Fatboy Slim based on the life of Imelda Marcos and the visual art project Playing the Building, an audience-interactive installation presented by Creative Time and currently on view at the Battery Maritime Building in New York City through August 24.

NYC will likely happen in 2009. All 2008 tour dates (including two in NJ) below...

you'd think with all his anti-capitalist, anti-big business talk all the time his tickets would be less than triple digits.

Wow, I just listened to the free track, "Strange Overtones." It's fantastic! Very much looking forward to the complete finished product.
