David Byrne Shares Cover Of Paramore’s ‘Hard Times’

David Byrne recently shared a cover of Paramore‘s After Laughter single “Hard Times.”

While retaining the original’s tribal drums, Byrne has added a dose of brass to his version, making it feel more celebratory than Paramore’s version.

“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 with the announcement of the cover. “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!” Byrne’s “Hard Times” version was combined with Paramore’s rendition of Talking Heads‘ “Burning Down the House” for a joint 12-inch Record Store Day exclusive vinyl release on April 20.
