The typically loaded album title refers to the Trump-era America (one for Black Mirror fans, eh?), of which Byrne extensively writes. “Is this meant ironically? Is it a joke? Do I mean this seriously? In what way? Am I referring to the past or the future? Is it personal or political?”

Later, Byrne adds: “I have no prescriptions or surefire answers, but I sense that I am not the only one looking and asking, wondering and still holding onto some tiny bit of hope, unwilling to succumb entirely to despair or cynicism.”

American Utopia will be released on 9th of March via Todomundo/Nonesuch.
