The David Byrne/Brian Eno Album Is Happening Today
The David Byrne/Brian Eno collaboration Everything That Happens Will Happen Today–the first collaboration between the two since 1981’s My Life In The Bush Of Ghosts–is available for purchase right now, with interested parties given the soon-to-be-standard purchasing options of immediate digital download, CD, or special pacakge. (The special package, which goes for $69.99, comes in the adorable little box at left, which can double as a kitchen centerpiece/conversation starter.) For those of you interested in trying before buying, the album is streaming for free as well (we’ve embedded it after the jump).
The album’s backend comes courtesy of Yahoo! Music head Ian Rogers’ new digital-music venture Topspin Media, which also helped out with the digital backend Nine Inch Nails’ The Slip and which, unbeknownst to me, put out new music by the Distillers’ Brody Dalle last week. (Time to update my RSS!) Rogers detailed how Topspin was involved in the production of Everything in a post on his company’s blog. Why not read it while listening to the new tunes?
