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?
“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.
While Rihanna was making her album, her team at Roc Nation actually reached out to Tame Impala for their permission to cover New Person, Same Old Mistakes, a track on their critically acclaimed 2015 album, Currents. The band was delighted to send this song her way.
Fans have taken to Twitter to rave about the cover:
