Additional artists were revealed to be featured on the Talking Heads ‘Stop Making Sense’ tribute album, including Lorde, Miley Cyrus, The National, Girl In Red and more. The project was first announced last month, with A24 confirming 16 featured would share their own covers of Talking Heads classics on the compilation titled Everyone’s Getting Involved: A Tribute to Talking Heads’ Stop Making Sense.

The tribute LP will mirror the original tracklist of Talking Heads’ 1984 concert film (and the corresponding live album), and feature recordings by the National, Lorde, Toro y Moi, Kevin Abstract, the Linda Lindas, Miley Cyrus, BadBadNotGood, Teezo Touchdown, Blondshell, and more. A24 also recently re-released Stop Making Sense, Jonathan Demme’s groundbreaking concert film that was shot over three nights at Hollywood’s Pantages Theater in December 1983. The independent film company recently kicked off a new slate of theatrical screenings that will play in cities such as Chicago, London, Los Angeles, New York, and San Francisco.

Paramore have already shared their rendition of “Burning Down the House,” and A24 released a clip in which Paramore vocalist Hayley Williams finds a large package on her doorstep containing jumbo grey suit—just like the one David Byrne sports onstage in ‘Stop Making Sense.’ The video ends with a snippet of Paramore playing “Burning Down the House.”
