Rihanna Covers Tame Impala On Her New Album

It’s been a very interesting day in camp Rihanna. First she released Work, the Drake-featuring first single from her long awaited eighth album ANTI, and then TIDAL went ahead and accidentally leaked the album.

The album was only up for a few seconds but it was long enough for fans to screenshot the tracklist and record some of the album previews, revealing a track that is actually a cover of a Tame Impala song.

Track nine on the album is called Same Ol’ Mistakes and is a cover of the Aussie band’s track New Person, Same Old Mistakes. The Kevin Parker-penned cut was the final track of the band’s 2015 record Currents.

Pitchfork have got their hands on an alleged 30 second clip of the song which sounds pretty similar to Tame Impala’s version, minus the fact that it’s Rihanna in the drivers seat this time around instead of Kev.

There’s still no release date for ANTI but surely it will come soon given that it’s basically all over the internet thanks to someone at TIDAL who is no doubt having a terrible day right now.

UPDATE 28/01/16:  Here’s the full version of Rihanna’s Tame Impala cover.
