David Byrne Provides Promotional Music for Windows XP

David Byrne's "Like Humans Do" will be included in every copy of Windows XP operating system to demonstrate the digital media capabilities of the new Windows Media Player for Microsoft® Windows XP, available Oct. 25.

The song comes from Byrne's Look Into the Eyeball album, and will play as a digital audio track, complete with album art and lyrics, the first time the Windows Media Player is used.

"Having a track from David Byrne included with Windows XP speaks to his broad appeal and gives millions of people a fun way to explore all the ways they can enjoy digital music on Windows XP," said Ty Braswell, vice president of New Media for Virgin Records.

WindowsMedia.com will feature a free webcast of an hour-long concert Byrne recorded before a private audience, premiering Aug. 2 at 7 p.m. EST on http://WindowsMedia.com/previewv2/xpconcerts/. It will also be available on demand through August.
