David Byrne recently announced an extensive world tour in support of his forthcoming solo record, American Utopia (Todomundo/Nonesuch Recrods). Byrne will perform songs from the new album, which is out March 9, as well as classics from his solo career and his days with Talking Heads. A 12-piece band will join him on stage for a choreographed concert that he has called "the most ambitious show I've done since the shows that were filmed for Stop Making Sense."
Byrne recently announced the release of American Utopia during a presentation of "Reasons To Be Cheerful," an ongoing series he curates of hopeful writings, photos, music, and lectures. The presentation was given at New York's New School to a live audience and also was streamed via his Facebook page. He also released the first track from the album, "Everybody's Coming To My House"- co-written with Brian Eno, featuring contributions from TTY, Happa, Isaiah Barr Leader of the Onyx Collective, Daniel Lopatin (Oneohtrix Point Never), Mercury Prize winner Sampha, and others. "Everybody's Coming To My House" is available to download instantly with pre-orders of American Utopia on iTunes and at nonesuch.com. Nonesuch Store pre-orders also include an exclusive print facsimile of an early handwritten lyric sheet to the song.
