The new compilation from A24 Music, "Everyone's Getting Involved: A Tribute to Talking Heads' Stop Making Sense," has been released.

The album kicks off with Miley Cyrus' cover of the Talking Heads' classic "Psycho Killer" from their album "Talking Heads: 77."

Earlier this year, a video of Cyrus performing "Psycho Killer" at the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles went viral online.

Fans gravitated towards the video shortly after the singer's victories at the 2024 Grammy Awards for Best Pop Solo Performance and Record of the Year for "Flowers" from Endless Summer Vacation.

"Everyone’s Getting Involved: A Tribute to Talking Heads’ Stop Making Sense" includes Paramore’s rendition of “Burning Down the House,” Lorde’s version of “Take Me to the River,” the National's cover of Fear of Music’s “Heaven,” Girl in Red's interpretation of “Girlfriend Is Better,” Teezo Touchdown’s performance of “Making Flippy Floppy,” and additional tracks.

Fans on X seem to adore the track, with one fan commenting: “psycho killer is a banger, she is giving gaga, european rave, psychedelic pop, c**** vibes, she is really serving”
