Play New Byrne & Eno Track Strange Overtones here:
As reported in â€˜rumourâ€™ form on Sonic earlier in the year, David Byrne will be embarking on a massive worldwide tour called The Songs Of David Byrne & Brian Eno kicking off in the States and Canada in mid September.
OK, now hereâ€™s the bad news. Itâ€™s a solo tour with no Brian Eno. (Bummer!).
Yep, Eno wonâ€™t be appearing as Byrne runs through a set based on their three Talking Heads albums and My Life In The Bush Of Ghosts.
The tour continues in â€˜Australasiaâ€™ early 2009 and reaches Europe in March.
The duo have recently finished a project together called Everything That Happens Will Happen Today and you can preview the free track, Strange Overtones above.
â€œBrian Eno and I recently finished our first collaboration in about 30 years.â€� Said Byrne, â€œFor the most part, Brian did the music and I wrote some tunes, words and sang. It's familiar but completely new as well. We're pretty excited.â€�
