For the latest installment of his Reasons To Be Cheerful series, musician David Byrne called upon the Detroit School of Arts’ vocal jazz ensemble to perform their rendition of “Everybody’s Coming to My House” from Byrne’s latest LP American Utopia.
The homemade video, filmed in part by students of the radio and TV department, features the ensemble crowding around a piano in the home of their music teacher, Mrs. V.
"We're only tourists in this life," the ensemble sings, "Only tourists but the view is nice/Now everybody's coming to my house."
