It must be fun being David Byrne. Since dissolving Talking Heads in the late 1980s, he has gone wherever his curiosity has taken him. He's explored world music; he's produced art books the size of paving stones; he's even recorded an Ibiza anthem with X-Press 2, Lazy, a new version of which features here. Grown Backwards is one of his most rewarding experiments yet, an exploration of songwriting over decades and even centuries, in a similar spirit to Rufus Wainwright (who guests here) or Stephin Merritt.
