The pair's follow-up to 1981's landmark "My Life in the Bush of Ghosts" leans heavy on Byrne's lyrics and vocals. "When we started this work, we started to think we were making something like electronic gospel: a music where singing was the central event, but whose sonic landscapes were not the type normally associated with that way of singing," Eno says.
Byrne is touring in support of the album this fall, with the repertoire to feature new songs plus selections from the Talking Heads' period of collaboration with Eno in the late 1970s and early '80s.
Here is the track list for "Everything That Happens Will Happen Today":
"My Big Nurse"
"I Feel My Stuff"
"Everything That Happens"
"Life Is Long"
"Wanted For Life"
"One Fine Day"
