On September 25, 2012 Tim Maia's Nobody Can Live Forever: The Existential Soul of Tim Maia, was released via David Byrne's label Luaka Bop, ultimately earning the enviable iTunes title of "Reissue of the Year."
If you have yet to hear these remastered recordings from the '70s, first take a look at the two-and-a-half minute short, below, entitled The Existential Adventures Of Tim Maia. In just a few minutes, learn all about the reckless and brilliant Brazilian soul artist himself, as narrated by the captivating and calm-voiced Devendra Banhart.
When the entertaining video—expertly illustrated by Momo & Sprits—is over, you will fully agree with Banhart's initial description of Maia as "the man who lived on the very edge in every way possible."
Warning: your life is about to feel real boring.
