David Byrne drops new live EP
Ex Talking Heads leader David Byrne dropped a new live EP comprising six live tracks from the tour to promote "American Utopia run"; the release was conceived to celebrate the end of a 144-date, career-defining tour.
The EP is available separately on CD and as part of "American Utopia (Deluxe Edition)", a repackaged version of the album on Todomundo/Nonesuch records.
In a statement, Byrne says:
An EP of live recordings from THE BEST LIVE SHOW OF ALL TIME! Well, that’s what the British music magazine New Musical Express said… The tour has just come to an end; we played our final show in Adelaide on November 25. The band sounds great and Pete Keppler did an amazing job on the mixes (and our live mix, if you have happened to catch the show in your hometown throughout the year).
