Mesopotamia is an EP by new wave band the B-52's. It was produced by David Byrne of Talking Heads and was originally planned to be the band's third studio album. Due to conflicts with Byrne and record label pressure, recording sessions were aborted prematurely and only six of ten songs to be completed were released as a shorter than originally intended LP. The record was distributed as a 12" EP by Warner Bros. in the US and by Island Records on vinyl and cassette in the UK and other non-US markets.

Mesopotamia EP by The B 52s Released January 27, 1982 Recorded September 1981 at Blank Tape Studios, New York City. In 1991, Mesopotamia was remixed and, combined with the Party Mix! album, was released on CD in the US. Mesopotamia is considered a departure in style for The B-52s; Byrne inserted a large amount of additional instruments, vocal overdubs, horns, layered percussion, and an altogether richer sound. Live versions of the songs were performed by the then five members of the band alongside two additional musicians David Buck and Roberto Arron, who played the trumpet and saxophone, respectively.

But the difficulties didn’t end with the EP’s release. Watch the B-52's on 'Guiding Light'. In Island’s haste to get Mesopotamia printed and in stores, the label accidentally included longer rough mixes of Cake, Loveland and Throw That Beat – upping the EP’s running time by more than seven minutes. Over the decades there have been rumors, and even some blunt talk from singer Fred Schneider, about expanding the EP into a fully realized album.

Turn your watch, turn your watch back About a hundred thousand years A hundred thousand years. I'll meet you by the third pyramid I'll meet you by the third pyramid Ah come on, that's what I want, we'll meet In Mesopotamia. This song and the entire Mesopotamia EP was recorded during the bands' three-year sojourn in Mahopac, NY. After their initial success, the band moved away from Athens, GA, to this New York town. The move, according to all band members, was a bad idea, as their neighbors were suspicious of band moving in, with some even suing to keep them from building a studio. In a 1990 Spin article, Keith Strickland talked about how the time there influenced this song: ‘Mesopotamia’ really reflects that isolation, says Keith.
