Tame Impala – Feels Like We Only Go Backwards

It was announced yesterday that the psychedelic rock band Tame Impala will be the latest non rap group to collaborate with the scorching Kendrick Lamar. The Compton rapper and the Aussie band will be making a new version of the band’s “Feels Like We Only Go Backwards” from their excellent 2012 album Lonerism. The song will be featured on the Soundtrack for the upcoming soundtrack to the movie Divergent. I honestly have no idea what that is but the soundtrack also features A$AP Rocky, Chance The Rapper and producer Clams Casino.  After loving his collaboration with Imagine Dragons (a band that I’m not a fan of) on the “Radioactive Remix”, I’m extremely excited to see what he can do with one of my absolute favorite rock groups.

This may seem like an odd coupling, but the members of Tame Impala are pretty well known hip-hop fans and have even covered the Outkast song “Prototype” before which is awesome on so many different levels:

Now that the precedent has been set they pretty much have to get Andre on a song. I didn’t even believe that last sentence while I was typing it.
