Curious new collaboration by David Byrne and Brian Eno, almost 30 years after 'My Life in the Bush of Ghosts'. Their new album, called 'Everything That Happens Will Happen Today', is a mellow collection of what Byrne described as "sung songs" and Eno as "electronic gospel". Its uplifting tone apparently came as a bit of a surprise. As Byrne wonders in the liner notes:
Where does the sanguine and heartening tone come from, particularly in these troubled times?
