David Byrne ... Happens Today
David Byrne and Brian Eno's new album, "Everything That Happens Will Happen Today," is available . . . well, . . . today.
Digital download only - $8.99
Digital download plus CD (shipped in November) - $11.99
Deluxe edition (also shipped in November) - $69.99
Deluxe edition (custom package) includes: Bonus songs, A short film about the album; screensaver app; miniature hardbound book. The deluxe edition is available only through the album's website (and probably eBay, eventually).
For clarity -- the physical CDs (and other bits and pieces) ship in November, but the digital files (mp3s, FLACs and screensaver) can be downloaded immediately upon purchase.
Also, notice on the embedded video player above that if you click "Show Playlist," you can select any track from the album. You can listen to the whole album for free this way, not just thirty-second clips from each track.
