David Byrne is the subject of a feature in the latest issue of Financial Times Magazine and spoke with writer Lilah Raptopoulos on the FT Weekend podcast. They talk about some of the “million-and-a-half things” for which he is known, as Raptopoulos puts it, including Talking Heads and the just-opened Broadway production of Here Lies Love, the immersive disco pop musical based on the rise and fall of Imelda Marcos and the People Power Revolution of the Philippines, featuring music by Byrne and Fatboy Slim. You can read the feature here and listen to the podcast below via Spotify and Apple Podcast:

The acclaimed 2010 double-disc song cycle album of Here Lies Love gets its first vinyl release this Friday, August 11, to coincide with the 2023 Broadway production. It features performances by a dream cast drawn from the worlds of indie rock, alt-country, R&B, and pop, including Florence Welch, Cyndi Lauper, Steve Earle, Sharon Jones, Natalie Merchant, Tori Amos, Kate Pierson, St. Vincent, My Brightest Diamond, Nellie McKay, Martha Wainwright, Róisín Murphy, Santigold, and Byrne himself. “Ingenious,” said the New York Times. “Insidiously infective songs.” You can pre-order the vinyl here.
