Her er David Byrnes første reelle soloalbum siden Grown Backwards fra 2004.
Det nye album startede sammen med Byrnes samarbejdspartner gennem lang tid, Brian Eno. Senere fik de følgeskab af produceren Rodaidh McDonald (The XX, King Krule, Sampha, Savages) og andre medvirkende såsom en af tidens mest anerkendte elektronise musikere, Daniel Lopatin (aka Oneohtrix Point Never), samt Jam City, Thomas Bartlett, Jack Peñate, Sampha og mange andre.
Byrne har selv udtalt følgende om albummet:
"These songs dont describe this imaginary and possibly impossible place, but rather they attempt to describe the world we live in now and that world, when we look at it, as we live in it, as it impacts on us immediately commands us to ask ourselves, Is there another way? A better way? A different way? This group of songs is indirectly about those questions. And what drives us to ask those questions. The songs are sincere to answer the question above, the title is not ironic. The title is not so much about a utopia, as it is about our longing, frustration, aspirations, fears, hopes regarding what could be, what is possible. How and what could we be. Surely, we ask ourselves, it doesnt have to be like this. There is a longing for possibility and I have a feeling that is what these songs touch on. I am as mystified as any of us I have no prescriptions or sure fire answers but I sense that I am not the only one asking, wondering and still willing to hold on to some tiny bit of hope, still willing to not succumb entirely to despair or cynicism. Its not easy, but music helps."
