David Byrne Relives Everything

May 18, 2009  |  11:45am
Nearly 30 years after their first and only album together (not counting the three Talking Heads records they collaborated on), Talking Heads frontman David Byrne and Brian Eno collaborated once more for 2008's Everything That Happens Will Happen Today. Between then and now, Byrne has been touring the record.

To help out Amnesty International, Byrne decided to throw four live tracks from the tour onto a digital EP called Everything That Happens Will Happen On This Tour. The songs are "Strange Overtones," "Help Me Somebody," "One Fine Day," and "I Feel My Stuff," three of which appear on the latest record. "Help Me Somebody" is from the duo's first album. The proceeds from the EP, which also includes an 11-page digital book, will go to Amnesty International.
