It’s 27 years since David Byrne and Brian Eno released their innovative My Life in the Bush of Ghosts album (video for “America Is Waiting” from that album below)

It’s a long time to wait for a follow-up, but the pair have been obviously busy with other projects in the meantime.

Everything That Happens Will Happen Today will be released on August 18th, with a taster for the album, Strange Overtones, available to download for free from the album website from Monday.

Eno calls the album “electronic gospel”, while Byrne says the tracks are “uplifting, hopeful and positive, even though there are lyrics about cars exploding, war and similarly dark scenarios”.
