    Andrew Lipovsky/NBC

    David Byrne and the cast of American Utopia on Broadway performed the classic Talking Heads tune "Road to Nowhere" on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night. The song is featured in the critically acclaimed production, now on Broadway at the Hudson Theatre, and on the original cast album, available on Nonesuch. Before the performance, Byrne sat down to speak with Fallon about the Broadway show and to teach him a bit of his Annie-B Parson–choreographed dance moves from the show. You can watch both below.

    The cast album for David Byrne’s American Utopia on Broadway is now out digitally and on a double CD, and the double-vinyl edition, due December 27, is available to pre-order in the Nonesuch Store. To pick up a copy of the CD, pre-order the vinyl, and download the album, head to the Nonesuch Store now. You can hear it on iTunes, Amazon, Apple Music, and Spotify.

    The album includes songs from Byrne's 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."
