Miley Cyrus has shared her industrial-tinged cover of Talking Heads' new-wave classic ‘Psycho Killer’.

The 31-year-old pop rock star is among the stars to contribute to 'Everyone’s Getting Involved: A Tribute to Talking Heads’ Stop Making Sense’, which is out now, and she's even switched up the lyrics on her electrifying rendition.

She belts over an industrial beat: "I love you, psycho killer / Gonna love you forever / You know I’ll never run away."

Miley also sings in French on the tune.

The star-studded collection is in celebration of the 40th anniversary of the original 1984 album and iconic concert film of the same name, with 16 artists from varying genres chosen to record a cover of one of the songs on 'Stop Making Sense'.

The first track to be released was Paramore's spin on 'Burning Down The House'.

The other artists are: BADBADNOTGOOD, Blondshell, The Cavemen., Chicano Batman Feat. Money Mark, DJ Tunez, El Mató a un Policía Motorizado, girl in red, Jean Dawson, Kevin Abstract, The Linda Lindas, Teezo Touchdown and Toro y Moi.

Despite a difficult past, band members David Byrne, Tina Weymouth, Chris Frantz and Jerry Harrison reunited for the first time in more than two decades last September for the 'Stop Making Sense' screening at the Toronto International Film Festival, followed by various other appearances and interviews.

It was the first time they were all together since their 2002 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony.

'Stop Making Sense' spent over two years on the Billboard 200 chart and drew wide acclaim from critics.

Addressing their reunion after years of bad blood in a recent interview with Pitchfork, frontman David said: "When it became obvious that the film was going to come back out—new print, new sound, new distribution and all that—whatever differences we might have had, we put them aside and said, 'No, we really believe in this, we're all united, and we all feel the same way about this.'"

After 16 years, Talking Heads split in 1991 when David decided to leave amid a fractious relationship with his bandmates and creative differences.

Asked about a reunion tour, guitarist and keyboardist Jerry told the Los Angeles Times: "Right now, we're concentrating on Stop Making Sense and how much fun we're having revisiting the film. We're living in the moment, so that's all we're thinking about."
