Tame Impala And Kendrick Lamar - "Backwards"

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.

  1. no offense to this version but whatever happened to the madlib remix of “feels like we only go backwards”?

  2. This is kind of bad, right?

  3. Would have been a lot better if Kendrick didn’t snarl the whole damn time.

    I think Kendrick has been trying too hard to sound REALLY INTENSE AND PASSIONATE lately, at least between this and the Imagine Dragon remix.

    • Yeah, when he flipped into that style on the “Bitch on’t Kill My Vibe” remix it was kind of a revelation, but then “Control,” the Imagine Dragons things, this… it’s getting to be a drag. He’s such a versatile rapper, he could have come up with a flow that fit the song better.

  4. This is awful. Kendrick has destroyed this song.

  5. I thought Kendrick was a good kid?

  6. Money grab
