David Byrne, fresh off the unanimous critical praise of his recent collaboration with Brian Eno, Everything That Happens Will Happen Today (TMT Review), has announced his latest collaboration. This time it's with hallowed non-governmental organization Amnesty International, who will receive the proceeds from the online sales of a four-song EP, cheekily entitled [Everything That Happens Will Happen on This Tour], recorded during Byrne's latest tour.
Says Byrne of the EP: "Some time ago Amnesty International asked if I might do "something" for that organization this year- (in previous years I had done one of my tour dates as a benefit for them). Amnesty has such an amazing and consistent track record of speaking out and helping to illuminate courageous people who might otherwise not be heard from so the answer was 'yes.'"
