The former Talking Heads frontman plays a brace of shows at the Royal Festival Hall...
The singer will perform at the venue on April 8 and 9 and is expected to announce more UK dates later in the year, as well as details of a new as yet untitled album.
Describing the new album, David Byrne said it is “very personal and very operatic” and that it will also contain a couple of arias.
In a recent interview he explained: “There’s ‘Un di Felice’, which is from La Traviata. There’s another one called ‘Au Fond Du Temple Saint’, which is from the Pearl Fishers.”
David Byrne added: “I don’t do the opera voice. I just sing them as songs, but they’re very emotional songs, so it’s a lot of fun.”
