American Utopia



Released: 9th Mar 2018


heavyweight 140g high-performance lp + download

Released: 9th Mar 2018


the talking heads frontman’s first solo album since 2004, this is a record packed with vivid ideas; a sprawling metropolis of thoughtful piano refrains, punchy synths and a pervading pop surrealism.

throughout 2017, Byrne had been collecting stories, news, ideas, and other items that all either embody or identify examples of things that inspire optimism, such as a tech breakthrough, a musical act, a new idea in urban planning or transportation – something seen, heard, or tasted. Just as the album questions the current state of society while offering solace through song, the content of the series recognises the darkness and complexity of today while showcasing alternatives to the despair that threatens us. “byrne filters grace, wonder and apocalyptic portent through his fractured worldview” 4/5 – mojo.
