All four members of the New York band – David Byrne, Chris Frantz, Tina Weymouth and Jerry Harrison – appeared on the show, talking about the new 40th anniversary edition of their classic live album Stop Making Sense and the film that it soundtracked.

Looking back at director Jonathan Demme’s film, bassist Tina Weymouth remembered, “We said, ‘We don’t want all the gimmicks’. We wanted the cameras to be like a sensitive eye; the way an audience member would be seeing it, without the camera getting in the way and playing around.”

She went on to say that the group wanted “no split screen” and “no interviews” to be featured. “That would be too Spinal Tap,”

Frontman David Byrne went on to talk about his celebrated dance moves from the film, “I’d be inspired by preachers or people feeling the spirit. And I’d see the kind of moves they were doing. I felt [like], ‘Oh! Music makes me feel like that, too. I put on some of the music [to rehearse] – some of our songs – and go, ‘This might make me move in a certain way. How do I wanna move with this song?’”

The 2LP and 2CD/Blu-ray reissue of Stop Making Sense is out 26 July and available to pre-order now. Released last year, the sold-out Deluxe Edition of the soundtrack will return as a 2LP black vinyl on Rhino.com and retail and 2LP crystal clear vinyl at Barnes and Noble. Both variants feature a 12-page booklet with liner notes from all four band members.

The 2CD/Blu-ray version includes the entire 28-page booklet from last year’s Deluxe Edition and a Dolby Atmos mix of the complete concert, mixed by Jerry Harrison and E.T. Thorngren, who also mixed the original release.
