David Byrne has taken his share of musical journeys in three decades, turning Talking Heads from egghead rockers into a funk orchestra, playing Latin music and scoring films and a ballet. But opera? Even his new record company was suspicious when Byrne submitted a disc that includes a piece from "La Traviata," sung in Latin, and a duet with Rufus Wainwright on a Georges Bizet piece sung in French. Yet the tracks are oddly compelling, and play a key role in "Grown Backwards," Byrne's most melodic and accessible solo album. "I think they were the crowbar that I used to open myself up emotionally and vocally," Byrne said. - www.davidbyrne.com
