David Byrne Covers Paramore’s “Hard Times”

David Byrne is looking to Paramore for inspiration this upcoming Record Store Day.

Since Paramore recorded “Burning Down the House” for an upcoming Talking Heads tribute album, Byrne returned the favor.

“Paramore recorded an amazing version of ‘Burning Down The House’ for a Stop Making Sense covers album that A24 is doing in connection with the re-release of the film,” Byrne wrote on social media. “That song is out now. The band told me that their song ‘Hard Times’ was inspired by Talking Heads, so I learned it and recorded my version of their great song with a horn section. This was fun!”

 Record Store Day 2024 happens on April 20.
