    Early James released the new music video for “High Horse,” the latest single from his upcoming debut album, Singing for My Supper, due March 13 on Easy Eye Sound and Nonesuch Records. The video, directed by Tim Hardiman, premiered via Rolling Stone Country, which says his "voice has a similar pockmarked, raspy quality and jazzy inflection to early Tom Waits." James says: "The song is a slightly comedic and regretful retrospective on how your childhood goes by so quickly and time changes your wants, needs and habits." You can watch the video here.

    David Byrne was on the CNN / PBS program Amanpour & Co. to talk with host Christiane Amanpour about his show American Utopia on Broadway. "As fate would have it, I was unable to watch the State of the Union address live," says Amanpour, "but for a very good reason as I was preparing for my next interview at a Broadway show which, as it happens, is a wonderful antidote to toxic and partisan politics.
