David Byrne's creativity knows no bounds – from his career with Talking Heads, to all the art installations, theatre pieces, and solo albums, including his latest, American Utopia. We'll get a peek inside his mind, and the wonderment that he puts to music, as Talia Schlanger's guest today. He talks about taking on the perspective of dogs and chickens in the new songs, and why he's been closing out concerts with a Janelle Monae cover that pays tribute to black Americans who have been killed by police. It's a wide-ranging conversation with the fascinating, David Byrne. On this encore edition of the World Cafe.
