Talking Heads reunion? No

Talking Heads frontman David Byrne has shot down rumours the band is set to reunite.

The veteran rockers sparked speculation that a reunion was in the works after a new Instagram account claiming to be the "Official Instagram account for Talking Heads" appeared online on Monday.

As WENN went to press, the account had 17,900 followers, compared to less than 1,000 when it launched. Eagle-eyed devotees also noticed it counts the band's old keyboardist, Jerry Harris, among its followers.

However, Byrne crushed millions of fans' dreams in a statement to Rolling Stone, as he denied having any involvement in the account.

"I have never heard of this, I don't know what it is or who is doing it, so clearly it can't be a "official' Talking Heads account," he said. "Whatever plans others in the band may have is strictly their own business and I wish them well."

Drummer Chris Frantz and bandmate Tina Weymouth also denied any reunion talk to Rolling Stone: "We were made aware of the Instagram account a few days ago as it was brought to life by someone who works with Jerry (Harrison). We have not even talked about this internally yet. We are all currently happily working on our own projects and there are no plans for a Talking Heads reunion."
