Cover Alert: The Lumineers Tackle Talking Heads’ ‘This Must Be the Place (Naive Melody)’

Lumineers Press Session

The Lumineers currently have America swooning with “Ho Hey,” aka “The Indie-Folk Sing-Along That Refuses to Die.” But they’ve just earned some major cool points for their reinterpretation of Talking Heads’ 1983 classic “This Must Be the Place (Naive Melody),” which strips the quirky, funky love song down to a simple strumming pattern, a raw lead vocal, and barely-there strings.

The cover will appear on the upcoming deluxe edition of The Lumineers’ self-titled debut, out tomorrow.

Check out the track below:

    Always a sweet song. Well covered. Not sure if this version adds anything new but it’s still a great song. I prefer the version by Tommy and the High Pilots (youtube) but not certain if they’ve recorded it. They added some additional percussion and banjo to the song.
