Additional artists who contributed covers to the project include Toro y Moi, Miley Cyrus, The National, Chicano Batman featuring Money Mark, The Linda Lindas, BADBADNOTGOOD and more. Everyone’s Involved: A Tribute To Talking Heads’ Stop Making Sense was assembled as part of a continuing celebration of the 40th anniversary of the iconic concert film. A24 screened a restored 4K print of Stop Making Sense worldwide last fall.

Talking Heads initially issued “Girlfriend Is Better” on the band’s 1983 studio album, Speaking In Tongues. A single featuring a live version from the Stop Making Sense soundtrack the following year.

“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,” wrote Norweigan pop star girl in red. “Being a part of this tribute is so sick and I’m super grateful I was given the opportunity. Talking Heads forever!!!!”
