Tame Impala Responds To Rihanna’s ‘Same Ol’ Mistakes’


Tame Impala has finally spoken up about Rihanna‘s cover of their song, New Person, Same Old Mistakes, re-named Same Ol’ Mistakes. The cover appears on her new album, Anti, released Jan. 28. But what does the band think?

They approve!

“We’re all really happy with how the song turned out, love it!” said vocalist and guitarist of the band, Kevin Parker, regarding the cover.

Fans have taken to Twitter to rave about the cover:

Rihanna kicks off her Anti World Tour on Feb. 26 in San Diego.
