David Byrne Covers Paramore’s ‘Hard Times’

    David Byrne has shared a cover of Paramore’s ‘Hard Times’, the lead single from the band’s 2017 album After Laughter. It arrives just over a month after Paramore offered their take on Talking Heads’ ‘Burning Down the House’ for the A24 compilation Everyone’s Getting Involved: A Tribute to Talking Heads’ Stop Making Sense. Both covers will feature on an exclusive 12″ set for release on Record Store Day, April 20. Take a listen below.

    “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,” Byrne wrote on social media. “This was fun!”
