Avant-rock pioneer Brian Eno and Talking Heads frontman David Byrne collaborated for a groundbreaking album called My Life in the Bush of Ghosts in 1981. They combined found recordings of voices (off the radio and so on) with funky Afro-Latin grooves, using the voices more or less as instruments rather than for the content of the words.
In December 2007, David Byrne announced on the BBC Radio music show, The Weekender, that he was working Brian Eno on a brand new album of "proper songs", describing it as a "completely different thing" from My Life in the Bush of Ghosts, which was mostly experimental. Eno had invited Byrne to finish some songs that he had written but that did not have lyrics, some of which were eight years old. The resulting album, Everything That Happens will Happen Today, was self-released on August 18, 2008 through the official album's website. No record label was involved, and it available for stream or download at EverythingThatHappens.com.
