Everything That Happens Will Happen Today

I loved "My Life In The Bush Of Ghosts", and have been waiting for the release of Brian Eno and David Byrne's latest collaboration, "Everything That Happens Will Happen Today.

It's just out - with digital downloads available today in advance of the physical discs in November.

One thing: it's not the sampled ambient soundscapes of "My Life...", and instead it's much more like Eno and Cale's "Wrong Way Up", texturing, looping, and layering simple rhythms with samples and Byrne's vocals. It's been thirty years, and the two artists have changed their focus and their interests many times in the intervening years - but it's good to see that that doesn't mean that creative spark of collaboration isn't lost.

If you're not sure what you're getting into, they're streaming the entire album so you can hear just what "Everything That Happens..." sounds like. It's a flash widget - so you can start listening to it here and now.
