David Byrne and Brian Eno have a new album out, “Everything That Happens Will Happen Today”. It’s available exclusively through their web site, http://www.everythingthathappens.com/. You can listen to the entire album on their site, or by using their streaming player right below this text.</p>
I’ve been listening to it while writing this post and it’s pretty good. It’s a nice mix of Eno’s music and Byrne’s lyrics and singing.
You can order the album from their website in various formats. They have 320kbps MP3 and FLAC, without any DRM. for $8.99. Yu can also get it as a CD plus the downloadable versions for $11.99. There is a deluxe package for $69.99 with all sorts of stuff for the diehard Byrne and Eno fans. It’s cool that they are selling it themselves. If they sold it through a record label on iTunes, they would get a tiny fraction of the $0.99 a song that iTunes charges.
This is their first collaboration since 1978’s My Life in the Bush of Ghosts.
