David Byrne's latest solo album is accompanied by a video of a musical performance by Detroit School of Arts Vocal Jazz Ensemble students.

It's not quite the "same as it ever was" when David Byrne was in Talking Heads, but the iconic singer is still a funky performer with his solo project. From quirky choreographed dance moves for "Once in a Lifetime" to a stint with him holding a fake brain on stage while performing his 2018 album "American Utopia," this show is sure to be interesting.
