But from the minute it starts, the bassline sounds super familiar. Which it SHOULD because it’s actually a sample of “Psycho Killer” by the Talking Heads.
Selena and Julia are Talking Heads-obsessed. So when we all got together in one room, Julia suggested, ‘Why don’t we just write over the bassline from ‘Psycho Killer?’ and we were all going, ‘That sounds great!’”
So great to hear the legacy of our song, “Psycho Killer,” and Tina’s legendary style of bass playing, quoted so prominently. Was a big surprise and a delight to learn that a new generation is getting introduced to both.
