Today, February 16, David Byrne has released “This Is That,” the latest track from his forthcoming album American Utopia, out March 9 on Todomundo / Nonesuch Records. Of the track, David noted. “This Is That” was co-written and produced by Daniel Lopatin and is available to download instantly with pre-orders of American Utopia on iTunes and nonesuch.com. Additionally, the track can be purchased/streamed as a standalone here.

Today, February 16, David Byrne has released “This Is That,”  the latest track from his forthcoming album American Utopia, out March 9 on Todomundo / Nonesuch Records. Of the track, David noted. “This Is That” was co-written and produced by Daniel Lopatin (also known as Oneohtrix Point Never) and is  available to download instantly with pre-orders of American Utopia on iTunes andnonesuch.com.  Additionally,  the track can be purchased/streamed as a standalone  here.

Uncut named “This Is That” The Month’s Best New Music saying, “‘This highlight from American Utopiafinds Byrne teaming up with Daniel Lopatin aka Oneohtrix Point Never; over resonant, distant electronic drums and samples of Chinese folk instruments, Byrne channels the imagery of gospel music, but with a modern twist[…]  One of the best songs of Byrne’s storied career”.

This past month, Byrne has been in Europe presenting “Reasons To Be Cheerful,” an ongoing series he curates of hopeful writings, photos, music, and lectures. Watch a stream of the presentation given at New York’s New School last month via David’s Facebook page. 

More about American Utopia
While David Byrne has collaborated on joint releases with Eno, Norman Cook (aka Fatboy Slim), and most recently St. Vincent over the past decade, American Utopia is Byrne’s first solo album since, 2004’s Grown Backwards, also on Nonesuch. American Utopia morphed during the writing and recording process, beginning with longtime collaborator Eno, and eventually growing to include collaboration with producer Rodaidh McDonald (The xx, King Krule, Sampha, Savages) alongside a diverse cast of creative contributors including Daniel Lopatin (aka Oneohtrix Point Never), Jam City, Thomas Bartlett (St. Vincent producer, aka Doveman), Jack Peñate, and others. The album was recorded in New York City at David’s home studio, Reservoir Studios, Oscilloscope, XL Studios, and Crowdspacer Studio and in London at Livingston Studio 1.
The album packaging features the work of “outsider artist” Purvis Young, whose work was often a blend of painting/drawing and collaged elements comprised of everyday found objects. A painting depicting a head with a face of indeterminate race or possibly gender—dreaming, meditating, contemplating—is on the album’s cover.

David Byrne’s recent works include Joan of Arc: Into the Fire, a theatrical exploration of the historical heroine which premiered at The Public Theater in New York (2017); The Institute Presents: NEUROSOCIETY, a series of interactive environments created in conjunction with PACE Arts + Technology that question human perception and bias (2016); Contemporary Color, an event inspired by the American folk tradition of color guard and performed at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center and Toronto’s Air Canada Centre (2015); Here Lies Love, a twenty-two-song theatrical production about the life of Imelda Marcos, authored in collaboration with Fatboy Slim that premiered at The Public Theater in New York (2013), traveled to London’s National Theater for a sold-out run (201415), and was remounted at the Seattle Repertory Theater (2017); Love This Giant, a studio album and worldwide tour created with St. Vincent (2012); and How Music Works, a book about the history, experience, and social aspects of music (2012). In 2015 Byrne curated Southbank Centre’s annual Meltdown festival in London. Aco-founder of the group Talking Heads (1976–88), he has released nine studio albums and worked on multiple other projects, including collaborations with Brian Eno, Twyla Tharp, Robert Wilson, and Jonathan Demme, among others. He also founded the highly respected record label Luaka Bop. Recognition of Byrne’s various works include Obies, Drama Desk, Lortel, and Evening Standard awards for Here Lies Love, an Oscar, Grammy, and Golden Globe for the soundtrack to Bernardo Bertolucci’s The Last Emperor, and induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with Talking Heads. Byrne has published and exhibited visual art since his college days, including photography, filmmaking and writing. He lives in New York City.

The Deluxe Version of Every Where Is Some Where is available digitally right now.

According to K.Flay, “the ‘Seattle Sessions’ are a reimagining of some of my favorite songs from the record, using live string, horn & choir sections. I worked with Budo, an old friend and an incredible producer, to bring the vision to life & I’m really excited for you guys to hear it.”

Last fall, The Recording Academy™ announced that K.Flay had been nominated for two GRAMMY Awards® for Best Rock Song (“Blood In The Cut”) and Best Engineered Album, Non Classical (“Every Where Is Some Where”).  K.Flay’s GRAMMY® nominated single “Blood In The Cut” – from her Billboard No. 1 Heatseekers debut album “Every Where Is Some Where” – was a breakout hit, amassing over a quarter million track equivalent units in the U.S., according to Nielsen Music, hitting the Top 5 at Alternative Radio and spending more than 6 months on the U.S. Billboard Alternative Songs chart, peaking at #4. The song was certified GOLD in Canada and reached #1 in the Canadian Alternative charts.

In support of her critically acclaimed release, the Illinois-born, Los Angeles based artist has made late night television appearances on NBC’s Late Night with Seth Meyers and TBS’ Conan and has received critical praise from The New York Times and Pitchfork thanks to her fearlessly detailed lyrics and socio-political commentary. “Every Where Is Some Where” (released April 7, 2017) is her most deliberate and dynamic work yet, and is a thrillingly vital album that channels the frenzy and anxieties of today’s world but ultimately exhilarates.

Praise for Lucius
"...Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig's soaring vocals make a massive pop sound and hint at new possibilities for one of our favorite bands." - NPR

Having already announced a headline tour of the U.S. beginning this spring, the band is also announcing additional dates extending into the fall. Fan presale for these newly added shows will begin on Tuesday, February 20, with the public on-sale taking place Friday, February 23. Every pair of tickets ordered for the headline tour will include a copy of Vide Noir. For more information and ticket links, visit lordhuron.com. Many dates on the spring tour have already sold out, including New York City’s Beacon Theatre, Chicago’s Riviera Theatre and Boston’s House Of Blues.

Vide Noir was written and recorded over the past two years at Lord Huron’s Los Angeles studio and informal clubhouse, Whispering Pines, and was mixed by Dave Fridmann (The Flaming Lips/MGMT). In conjunction with the album announcement, the band released “Ancient Names (Part I)” and “Ancient Names (Part II),” which received critical praise from NPR Music and SPIN who called them, “An eery, unresolved tale of a crystal ball vision that amplifies the band’s characteristic thematic darkness into distorted garage rock.”

Singer, songwriter and producer Ben Schneider found inspiration wandering restlessly through his adopted home of LA at night: “My nighttime drives ranged all over the city—across the twinkling grid of the valley, into the creeping shadows of the foothills, through downtown’s neon canyons and way out to the darksome ocean. I started imagining Vide Noir as an epic odyssey through the city, across dimensions, and out into the cosmos. A journey along the spectrum of human experience. A search for meaning amidst the cold indifference of The Universe,” he says.

As a true multi-media artist, Schneider has once again created an adorned world to inhabit within Vide Noir: the album will be accompanied by a wealth of imagery, films and immersive experiences crafted to expand upon its narratives and themes. This builds on Schneider’s past work, which used videos, a comic book, a choose-your- own-adventure hotline and assorted Easter eggs as means of deepening the listener experience.

Originally a musical and visual solo project by Michigan-native-turned-Angeleno Schneider, Lord Huron now includes members Mark Barry (percussion), Miguel Briseño (bass) and Tom Renaud (guitar). After a pair of independent EPs, Lord Huron released two full-length albums Lonesome Dreams (2012) and Strange Trails(2015) on IAMSOUND Records, followed by extensive touring and prestigious festival appearances both stateside and abroad. After appearing in the hit Netflix show “13 Reasons Why” the band’s song “The Night We Met” (from Strange Trails) was officially certified Platinum in January 2018.
