David Byrne Releases New Live EP

Not sure how we missed this one, but earlier this week David Byrne announced the release of a new live four song EP culled from performances from his current world tour called – Everything That Happens Will Happen On This Tour – David Byrne On Tour: Songs of David Byrne and Brian Eno – with proceeds to benefit Amnesty International. Give a listen to the songs on Byrne’s website and then go buy it – it’s for a great cause…

Here’s the back story on the release…

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.” It was decided to record some songs from my current tour for them to be sold as a download with the proceeds going to Amnesty. As there are no physical costs with digital distribution this means more of the sales percentage actually goes to where it’s supposed to. So, thank you for supporting a great organization and I hope you like these recordings too. They will be available exclusively here on Monday, 5/11/09.
