Eno And Byrne: Together Again After 27 Years

collage 300 (david byrne, brian eno photo by Danny Clinch)

Twenty-seven years ago, Brian Eno and David Byrne made a record like no other: My Life in the Bush of Ghosts. Now, nearly 30 years later, they're about to release a follow-up. We've got a sneak preview. Also on this edition of All Songs Considered: a surprising collaboration between reggae legend Lee "Scratch" Perry and Andrew W.K. Also, Van Dyke Parks and Inara George (singer for The Bird and The Bee) team up for an unusual record of baroque-styled pop songs. And we've got new music from Earlimart and The Avett Brothers, as well as live music from She and Him and Jim James of My Morning Jacket.
