I've been reading and enjoying David Byrne's journal* for some time, so it's good now to have it accessorised by the sound track to Everything That Happens Will Happen Today, his collaboration with Brian Eno. In fact, this music has been my major accessory this month. Who needs handbags when this makes me happier? On the website, they say 'PS: If you like what you hear, please share the streaming player on the left of the page with your friends, or embed it on your Web site, blog or profile' . So here you go, friends ...
This is what David Byrne says in his journal: I’m also wondering whether the web-curious will allow news of the album to spread more or less by itself. In the past, I might have undertaken all kinds of expensive marketing plans to prepare for a record release: there would be a teaser, live shows, posters, magazine ads, interviews, and advance CDs sent to writers and reviewers. We’ve done a few interviews, but that’s about it. It will be interesting to see if audiences find out about this song — and the record — without all those marketing techniques, and solely through Internet word-of-mouth.
I hope you'll pass it on too, if you like it.
*ps his radio thingy is pretty good too.
