“American Utopia” will be Byrne’s first solo album in 14 years after 2004’s “Grown Backwards” and will be supported by a world tour of what Byrne has called his “most ambitious” live show in more than 30 years.

The first single off “American Utopia”, “Everybody’s Coming to My House” was co-written by Brian Eno and features contributions from Mercury Prize winner Sampha, TTY, Happa Isaiah Barr (Onyx Collective) and others, according to his label, Nonesuch, which says the album “questions the current state of society while offering solace through song.”

“The title is not so much about a utopia, as it is about our longing, frustration, aspirations, fears, hopes regarding what could be, what is possible. … There is a longing for possibility — and I have a feeling that is what these songs touch on,” said Byrne of the LP.

The artist will begin touring just a few days before the album’s release; in addition to previously announced dates in the United States, South America, Croatia and Denmark, he will perform at festivals in Brazil, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain and Italy, among others.
