Teezo Touchdown covers ‘Making Flippy Floppy’ for Talking Heads ‘Stop Making Sense’ tribute album

It follows Paramore’s re-imagined version of ‘Burning Down The House’.

Teezo Touchdown has today shared his take on Talking Heads’ ‘Making Flippy Floppy’, the second single to be unveiled from A24 Music’s forthcoming covers compilation album ‘Everyone’s Getting Involved: A Tribute To Talking Heads’ Stop Making Sense’.

Traversing the genre boundaries of pop-punk, R&B, and rap, Teezo Touchdown has been co-signed by the likes of Andre 3000 and Tyler, the Creator, and here applies these contemporary twists to the iconic 1980s track.

‘Everyone’s Getting Involved: A Tribute To Talking Heads’ Stop Making Sense’ will celebrate the 40th anniversary of the concert film and its accompanying soundtrack album, both of which were recorded at three shows at Los Angeles’ Pantages Theatre in December 1983. Its 16 re-worked tracks aim to offer new interpretations of the band’s seminal sound, the first of which - ‘Burning Down The House’ - arrived courtesy of Paramore.

The other artists set to feature on the album are: BADBADNOTGOOD, Blondshell, The Cavemen., Chicano Batman Feat. Money Mark, DJ Tunez, El Mató a un Policía Motorizado, girl in red, Jean Dawson, Kevin Abstract, The Linda Lindas, Lorde, Miley Cyrus, The National, and Toro y Moi.

The details of which tracks the other artists will be covering are still under wraps (so watch this space!), but in the meantime you can wrap your ears around Teezo Touchdown’s cover of ‘Making Flippy Floppy’ below.
