From Austin City Limits, New West Records will release a CD/DVD, and separately available 2LP Live set from a 2001 show performed by David Byrne, the estranged leader of Talking Heads. And while it seems somewhat blasphemous that he would pursue these classic songs without the help of the band who helped make them what they were, also remember that this show was from November 8, 2001.
This set, being labeled Live From Austin, TX, showcases thirteen songs including his hit single at the time, “Like Humans Do”. There’s no doubt that Byrne was in fine musical form when he produced this set.
Live From Austin, TX: David Byrne will be released on June 2 in both CD and vinyl LP forms. The CD set will provide the DVD of the televised and performed show. The 2LP set will be produced in 180g-weight vinyl and will provide a download card for the digital format of the songs.
