David Byrne is currently on his “untetheredAmerican Utopia tour, and he’s just shared the July edition of his monthly playlist, which he’s titled “On the Road” and features songs he’s been listening to, uh, on the road. The playlist contains multiple selections from the new albums from Neko Case and Superorganism, as well as Kanye West‘s “Violent Crimes,” and recent singles from Father John Misty, Mitski, Janelle Monae, and SOPHIE. Also included on the playlist are songs from Jorja Smith, Lykke Li, Christine and the Queens, Bill Callahan, Fantastic Negrito, Thomas Bartlett & Nico Muhly, Anwar, and others. You can listen to the full playlist, along with his pop music playlist from May, below.

David released his first solo album in 14 years back in March, and his tour includes four NYC-area dates: Panorama festival at the end of July; Queens’ Forest Hills Stadium on September 15 (tickets), and then shows at Brooklyn’s Kings Theatre on September 16 (tickets) and September 17 (sold out).
