Paramore Return to Instagram With Talking Heads Tribute Teaser

Paramore on Wednesday (Jan. 10) shared their first new post on their official Instagram account since wiping the page completely clean in a social media purge to end 2023.

The new post is a video teaser shared in tandem with the film house A24, advertising a tribute album commemorating Stop Making Sense, the influential 1984 concert film by Talking Heads.

Paramore say they will be the first track on the album. In the trailer, you can hear a bit of Hayley and Paramore performing the classic Talking Heads track “Burning Down the House.”

“We’ve got a tape we’d like to play you,” it says in the post, referencing the opening line of Stop Making Sense. “16 tracks from 16 artists. Track 1: Paramore. Coming soon.” It is currently unclear what other 15 artists will be involved, but we’ve got our eyes peeled.

The original Stop Making Sense, helmed by Silence of the Lambs director Jonathan Demme, is revered for its innovative approach to capturing live music. The movie is considered a milestone in concert filmmaking for its visual presentation, cultural impact and timeless appeal. It also recirculated in theaters in 2023, commemorating 40 years since the original film was shot.

Paramore’s latest album, This Is Why, emerged in February 2023. The band will continue taking their live show across the globe in 2024, including on tour with Taylor Swift.
