David Byrne was the musical guest this past weekend on Saturday Night Live.

The Talking Heads frontman performed "Once in a Lifetime" off the band's fourth studio album, Remain in Light

 
He also performed "Toe Jam", a song he composed as part of a collaboration with Fat Boy Slim in 2008.

 
Lastly, Byrne was part of a sketch with John Mulaney where he played a disgruntled LaGuardia Airport baggage handler who eventually breaks into a spoof of "Road To Nowhere" from the Talking Heads' Little Creatures album.

Byrne just wrapped his first Broadway run for American Utopia, a theatrical concert based on a reimagined version of the seventh Talking Heads album. Although the initial shows ended in mid-February it was announced that it will make a return in September 2020 for a 17 week run. 

Byrne's last appearance on Saturday Night Live was in 1989.
