Paramore return with cover of Talking Heads‘Burning Down The House’

The trio - who recently wiped their social media channels - have shared the first track from a ‘Stop Making Sense’ tribute album.

After a few weeks’ of fans worrying that the worst had happened, former DIY cover stars Paramore have (finally) made an exciting return: today they’ve shared their cover of Talking Heads’ iconic hit ‘Burning Down The House’.

Earlier this month (back on 10th January), the band - along with A24, who now own the rights to Talking Heads’ iconic 1984 concert film Stop Making Sense - shared a mysterious video clip to their recently-wiped social media accounts, which saw Hayley Williams receiving a special delivery - David Byrne’s giant suit from the film - before uttering the film’s opening line to her bandmates; “I’ve got a tape I’d like to play you”.

What followed was a short clip of Paramore’s take on the 1983 classic ‘Burning Down The House’, along with the confirmation that it’s one of 16 covers to be included on a ‘Stop Making Sense’ tribute album (‘A Stop Making Sense tribute album: 16 tracks by 16 artists. Track 1: Paramore, coming soon’).

Now, just a handful of weeks on, the band have shared the full cover.
