David Byrne Has Written A New Stage Musical

(Classic Rock) Former Talking Heads frontman David Byrne has written a musical, he's confirmed. He previously worked with Norman Cook, aka Fat Boy Slim, on the concept album and stage production Here Lies Love about Imelda Marcos, the former First Lady of the Philippines - and he reveals the process inspired him to create another show.

Byrne tells NME "I did a musical with Norman Cook at the National Theatre last year. I've got another one. No surprise.

"Time passes and because these things [musicals] take so long, at some point when I realized it was doing well, and was an enjoyable experience and very moving and all that, I thought, 'Oh, while this is all getting worked out, I'll start another one', which is now written." Read more here.
