David Byrne Announces American Utopia, Posts New Single “Everybody’s Coming to My House”

David Byrne is releasing a new album very soon, his first since 2004’s Grown Backwards. American Utopia is due out on March 9, and features collaborations with Oneohtrix Point Never, Jam City, Doveman, Jack Peñate, Sampha, TTY, and Happa Isaiah Barr (Onyx Collective). It was co-produced by Brian Eno and Rodaidh McDonald. Byrne announced the album during a live-streamed presentation he gave at the New School in New York City.

The LP’s first single, “Everybody’s Coming to My House,” is a piece of mechanistic mutant disco co-written with Brian Eno. If the title makes you think of “Daft Punk is Playing At My House,” the music itself may conjure impression of LCD Soundsystem as well, overlaid with Byrne’s trademark and more histrionic vocals. You can listen to the song and peruse the track list below. Byrne has also announced an associated world tour–which Byrne calls “the most ambitious show I’ve done since the shows that were filmed for Stop Making Sense.”
