July 28, 2008 2:18 PM ET

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.

Song Stories

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
