New David Byrne: Stream ‘Everybody’s Coming To My House’ — New LP ‘American Utopia’ Out 3/9

The visionary David Byrne announced some news on Monday: He has a new album, American Utopia, coming out soon on Todomundo/Nonesuch Records.

It’ll be out on March 9, to be precise, and with the announcement came the premiere of its lead single, the bouncy “Everybody’s Coming To My House”:

American Utopia will be the longtime Talking Heads band leader’s first solo album since 2004’s Grown Backwards, and was produced by Brian Eno and Rodaidh McDonald.

The album comes as part of Byrne’s ongoing project, Reasons To Be Cheerful, which has also featured speaking engagements, theatrical performances and other activities in recent years.

Said Byrne in a statement:

“These songs don’t describe an imaginary or possibly impossible place but rather attempt to depict the world we live in now. Many of us, I suspect, are not satisfied with that world—the world we have made for ourselves. We look around and we ask ourselves—well, does it have to be like this? Is there another way? These songs are about that looking and that asking.”
