David Byrne‘s Broadway run of American Utopia is underway, having officially opened on Sunday (10/20) at The Hudson Theatre and continues through January 19. While the show is based on his great 2018 tour — featuring Byrne and 11 musicians presenting his solo and Talking Heads songs in an “untethered” form on a stage free of cables, amplifiers and other equipment — it has been tweaked, with help from choreographer Annie-B Parson, for a more theatrical experience, with a little more more between-song banter and a slightly different setlist. Tickets are still available.

You can listen to the whole Broadway show now as the official cast recording has been released digitally via Nonesuch, with a double CD edition out November 22 and vinyl due later this winter. You can listen to that below. You can also watch a video made at American Utopia on Broadway’s opening night, featuring live footage and interviews with Byrne and his band. Watch that below as well.
