Alex Turner of The Arctic Monkeys Covers Tame Impala

Alex Turner has been a busy guy lately; after responding to his recent beef with The Orwells, he stopped by Triple J to record a slowed-down acoustic version of Tame Impala’s “Feels Like We Only Go Backwards.” Turner looks all slicked-back like a cool rock star dude, serving as a constant reminder that rock and roll will never die. Check it out.

The acoustic take on the track offers a different direction than the spacey psychedelia of the original song on Tame Impala’s Lonerism. This doesn’t make the tune any less immediate, though; it even reveals a new side to the beautiful lyrics.

The Arctic Monkeys are returning stateside next month, as they continue their extensive tour. Tickets available at Rukkus.
