''My Life in the Bush of Ghosts'' is a 1981 album by Brian Eno and David Byrne, titled after Amos Tutuola's 1954 novel of the same name. The album was re-released in expanded form in 2006.

Receiving strong reviews upon its release, ''My Life'' is now regarded as a high point in the discographies of Eno and Byrne. In a 1985 interview, singer Kate Bush remarked that the album "left a very big mark on popular music," while critic John Bush describes it as a "pioneering work for countless styles connected to electronics, ambience, and Third World music." The extensive use of sampling on ''My Life'' is widely considered ground-breaking --it was one of the first albums to do so-- but it's actual influence on the sample-based music genres that later emerged continues to be debated.

Byrne would tour to promote his collaborations with Eno in 2008 and 2009 and release the live EP ''Everything That Happens Will Happen on This Tour – David Byrne on Tour: Songs of David Byrne and Brian Eno'' featuring a performance of "Help Me Somebody" in 2009. - Wikipedia
