Talking Heads frontman and solo extraordinaire, David Byrne is never short on ideas! Now, he has announced a brand-new monthly radio show called Here Comes Everybody, which launched yesterday (August 1) on the Sonos Sound System Station, which you can listen to online via Mixcloud, here.  

Speaking about the new show, Byrne said: “I make a new playlist every month! I try not to repeat songs, but sometimes one can’t help going back to something one loves.”

“The playlists for this radio show are very often thematic - movie scores, current releases, South Indian surprises, Turkish pop. You may not like them all, but then come back next month and there it will be…the music you have been waiting for your whole life.”

A film version of David Byrne’s American Utopia on Broadway – a large-scale theatre production that saw Byrne perform a career-spanning selection of hits, from both Talking Heads and his solo catalogue, accompanied by an eleven person band that doubled as a dance ensemble – directed by Spike Lee, is set to premiere on HBO later this year.

In a press statement, Lee said: “It is my honor and privilege that my art brother, Mr. David Byrne, asked me to join him in concert, to invite me into his magnificent world of American Utopia.” Read more here. 

Subsequent episodes of Byrne's Here Comes Everybody radio program will air on the first day of each month. Tune in here.
