Fast forward to this month, and the film giant has stirred excitement with a teaser for a tribute album to Stop Making Sense. The highlight? Paramore’s rendition of “Burning Down The House” is now available for fans. Listen below to the new Paramore track.
A Star-Studded Tribute Album in the Works
The tribute album, titled Everyone’s Getting Involved: A Tribute To Talking Heads’ Stop Making Sense, is still shrouded in mystery, lacking a confirmed release date. However, its lineup is nothing short of spectacular. Alongside Paramore, the album features an array of diverse artists, including BADBADNOTGOOD, Blondshell, The Cavemen, and even Miley Cyrus, to name a few. Each artist brings their unique flair, promising a rich homage to the Talking Heads’ legacy.
Paramore and SZA Collab on the Horizon
The release of “Burning Down The House,” a song that became Talking Heads’ most significant US hit, is a testament to Paramore’s versatility.

This release, coupled with today’s announcement of a long-awaited collaboration with SZA, is a reassurance to Paramore fans. Despite rumors of the band’s potential breakup, these developments suggest that Paramore is not just surviving but thriving.
Paramore’s cover of “Burning Down The House” is more than just a tribute; it’s a statement of their enduring presence in the music world.
