David Byrne's Bicycle Diaries Slated for Audiobook Release Sept. 28


Talking Heads frontman and cycling aficionado David Byrne has recorded 2009’s Bicycle Diaries as an audiobook with music.

Bicycle chronicles Byrne’s folding-bike exploration during Talking Heads globetrotting tours starting in the early ‘80s.

He also includes photographs to accompany his chronicles of bike-perspective across such lands as Berlin, Istanbul and his adopted hometown NYC.

“I also realized that this particular book could be consumed in any order, and it didn’t matter which chapter you started with,” Byrne said in a news release. “So one could download and listen to the chapters as individual podcasts, in any sequence.”

Pre-oders began today here. Bicycle Diaries will be available on audiobook and paperback Sept. 28.
