When Microsoft releases their new operating system Windows XP on October 25, 2001 every copy will come with the new David Byrne song "Like Humans Do" preloaded in order to showcase the new version of Windows Media Player.

Originaly released on Byrne’s new album Look Into the Eyeball, the song will automatically play as a digital audio track, complete with album art and lyrics, the first time Windows Media Player is launched on a users computer after installing Windows XP.

Starting at 7PM EDT on August 2, 2001 fans will able to catch a free WindowsMedia.com webcast of a private concert with Byrne. The hour-long concert will include live versions of songs from Look into the Eyeball, as well as new versions of Byrne's favorites from his days with the band Talking Heads and his work as a solo artist. The concert was recorded at Microsoft Studios in Redmond, WA using the latest Windows Media Video technology to ensure the quality of the sound and picture will be as high as possible.
