David Byrne, former frontman for the Talking Heads, remains one of the most remarkable and fascinating musicians making music today. David released American Utopia, his 11th studio album, in March via Todo Mundo and Nonesuch Records. It was his first solo album since 2004, and it hit a career-high #3 in the Billboard Top 200 upon its release.
The legendary performer holds court at Merriweather Post Pavilion on Saturday, July 28.
David recently released a video for “Everybody’s Coming to My House” from American Utopia, featuring a performance of the song by Detroit School of Arts Vocal Jazz Ensemble students. Watch the official music video for “Everybody’s Coming to My House” by David Byrne on YouTube:
Said Stereogum of the new record, “American Utopia is an album full of pulsating beats and rich textures. You could also say that about any Talking Heads record, but the new album isn’t a throwback; it feels like it could only exist right now.”
Undertaking his biggest tour in years, David sold out The Anthem in DC for May! Don’t miss him when he comes around our area for a second time this year! Buy your tickets online.
