When David Byrne's name began to trend on Twitter yesterday morning, my first thought was "oh no, not another." Fortunately, instead of reading of another heartbreaking and untimely rockstar death, Byrne was simply announcing his first new true solo album in about fourteen years. As another edition to his ongoing series, "Reasons to be Cheerful," Byrne shared the following on the new album:
In addition to the new album, Byrne also shared a video for the single "Everybody's Coming To My House" which continues the wild melodies Byrne has been known for over the past four decades and builds the expectations for the new album. It's a classic Byrne/Eno output and one the bodes well for the future.
