Video: The Lumineers cover Talking Heads' "This Must Be The Place (Naïve Melody)"

The Lumineers' cover of Talking Heads' "This Must Be The Place (Naïve Melody)" at VH-1's You Oughta Know In Concert is currently available for viewing . The song is available on a recently released deluxe version of the band's platinum-certified self-titled debut album.

The song's themes have a powerful context for the band who have been touring nonstop since the release of their debut album nineteen months ago. "As a band that has been on the road for the better part of three straight years, we know what it means to miss home. We know what it means to be away from friends and family," said lead singer Wesley Schultz.
