Released at Midnight, Paramore’s cover of “Burning Down the House” is the first release from A24 Music’s tribute to the Talking Heads’ amazing concert film, Stop Making Sense.
Stop Making Sense, the film and album alike, was a truly taste-forming listen for me. My mother was a big Talking Heads fan, and passed it down to me. So, suffice to say, I was coming in with big expectations.
They absolutely kill it. Hayley Williams sings her ass off, the instrumentation is spot on, and it’s just a full force fist to the face of a cover.
In short: Hell yeah.
No word on who else is on the cover album, nor its release date, but hopefully we get more soon.
