David Byrne's self-titled album (styled "davidenryb") was released in 1994. "Angels" and "Back in the Box" were the two main singles released from the album. The first one entered the US Modern Rock Tracks chart, reaching #24, and its music videos are very rare these days.

The album spent six weeks on the Billboard 200 chart.
