A new EP from David Byrne features live versions of four tracks from his recent album American Utopia as well as a pair of Talking Heads classics

David Byrne has released a new live EP, titled "...The Best Live Show Of All Time" - NME.

As you can probably guess, the title is based on a review by the publication of the former Talking Heads frontman's live show behind recent album American Utopia. It takes in live versions of four tracks from that album as well as recordings of two Talking Heads tracks: 'I Zimbra' and 'This Must Be The Place (Naïve Melody)'.

All of the tracks featured were recorded earlier this year during a show at New York's Kings Theatre. It can be purchased on CD here or be listened to as part of a new deluxe edition version of American Utopia.
