We’re finally getting more details about the upcoming album celebrating the soundtrack to Talking Heads‘ iconic concert film, Stop Making Sense


Up until now, we’ve only known which artists will be on the album, Everyone’s Getting Involved: A Tribute to Talking Heads’ Stop Making Sense, with a few singles released, including versions of “Burning Down the House” and “Take Me to the River,” recorded by Paramore and Lorde, respectively.

Well, now, the complete track list is out, with Miley Cyrus covering “Psycho Killer,” The National taking on “Heaven” and The Linda Lindas putting their spin on “Found a Job.” A new cover has also just been released from the album, girl in red’s cover of “Girlfriend is Better.”

“Talking Heads is an iconic band that helped define my identity when I was a teenager and they continue to inspire young people all around the world,” girl in red says. “Being a part of this tribute is so sick and I’m super grateful I was given the opportunity.”
