Uncut named “This Is That” The Month’s Best New Music saying, “‘This highlight from American Utopiafinds Byrne teaming up with Daniel Lopatin aka Oneohtrix Point Never; over resonant, distant electronic drums and samples of Chinese folk instruments, Byrne channels the imagery of gospel music, but with a modern twist[…]  One of the best songs of Byrne’s storied career”.

This past month, Byrne has been in Europe presenting “Reasons To Be Cheerful,” an ongoing series he curates of hopeful writings, photos, music, and lectures. Watch a stream of the presentation given at New York’s New School last month via David’s Facebook page.
