New York Times says, “Burnett speak-sings his way through free-associative songs that contain biblical allusions, echoes of the blues, tall tales, lovers’ plaints and warnings about disinformation, the cult of personality and the encroachments of technology;” read the full feature HERE. Los Angeles Times describes, “It’s not a significant departure, thematically, for this lifelong seeker of larger truths;” read HERE.

Watch T Bone Burnett speak with PBS Newshour HERE.

The Invisible Light is a fusion of trance, electronic, folk, tribal and global music. At the heart of this trilogy is technology and how it has advanced significantly throughout the course of the last century, with radio, film, television and the internet serving as central parts of our lives. In acoustic space, people hear from every direction at once, the center is everywhere, and there is no border.

Burnett’s disruptive Keynote speech at this year’s SXSW Conference has garnered extensive attention, with Fast Company noting that Burnett “spoke out against the growing power of Silicon Valley giants like Google and Facebook while affirming the importance of artists’ rights. ‘Artists create conscience,’ the producer said. ‘The artists are our only hope.’” Listen to full speech HERE.
