    Listen: David Byrne Talks with 'Are We on Air?' Podcast

    David Byrne is the guest on the latest episode of the Are We on Air? podcast hosted by Arman Naféei. "With a mind as sharp as an encyclopedia but as free as the wind, Byrne delves into the music and poetry that inspired him to re-imagine the Top 40, launching his iconoclastic career," says Naféei. "As original as thinkers come, jumping into Byrne’s world pushes boundaries, questions structures, and does it all with Byrnian flare: perfectly synchronous with eclectically mesmerizing style." You can hear the conversation here:

    David Byrne's American Utopia will return to Broadway this September; you can get tickets here. The cast album, which you can hear here, includes songs from his 2018 album, American Utopia, along with music from Talking Heads and Byrne’s solo career. Byrne shares the spotlight with a diverse ensemble of eleven musical artists from around the globe for an event that delivers "an experience unlike anything else," says Billboard. "Dazzling, rapturous and jubilant," exclaims the New York Times. "Astonishing," raves Hollywood Reporter. "A knockout celebration of music, dance and song. Pure bliss." Rolling Stone calls it "a tonic for our tumultuous times."

    David Byrne talks with hip-hop artist Open Mike Eagle on Fuse, a podcast from Bomb magazine. "Your music has been in my life for a very long time," Eagle says. "One of my earliest musical memories, when I was like five or six years old ... I think it’s like the second song I ever remember hearing was 'Burning Down the House' ... And, you know, 'Once in a Lifetime' is literally one of my favorite songs ever. Like if I were to make an objective top ten list, that song would be on there." You can hear their conversation here.
