Details about David Byrne and producer Brian Eno's collaboration album have emerged, as the duo launched a new site today. The album, entitled Everything That Happens Will Happen Today, will be released in August strictly through the album's official website. As Byrne says in a video on the page, Eno wrote the music and Byrne wrote the lyrics. Everything That Happens will be streamed for free in its entirety upon its release, with physical and digital copies available for purchase. If you sign up for updates at the page, you'll also be sent a free MP3 of one of the songs on August 4th. Additionally, Byrne will go on a tour that prominently features his previous collaborations with Eno, including their three Talking Heads albums together and their 1981 album My Life in the Bush of Ghosts. Dates for that tour will be announced soon.

“Nightshift”

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
