Tame Impala And Kendrick Lamar – “Backwards”

By James Rettig / March 7, 2014 - 12:18 pm

We’ve already heard some great tracks off the upcoming Divergent soundtrack: M83 contributed the epic “I Need You“, A$AP Rocky teamed up with Gesaffelstein for “In Distress,” and Pia Mia rounded up Chance The Rapper and Clams Casino on “Fight For You.” The soundtrack also pairs up Tame Impala and Kendrick Lamar for a reworking of “Feels Like We Only Go Backwards,” a track from the Australians’ sophomore album Lonserism. The new version is simply called “Backwards” and the band’s wobbly psych-pop sounds great over Kendrick’s snarl.

The Divergent soundtrack is out on 3/11.
