Arctic Monkeys cover Tame Impala – watch

Band cover 'Feels Like We Only Go Backwards' on Australian radio

Arctic Monkeys have covered 'Feels Like We Only Go Backwards' by Tame Impala. See above to watch a live performance of the cover.

Alex Turner recorded the cover for Australian radio station Triple J's 'Like A Cover' show earlier this week (May 8). Drummer Matt Helders was also in the studio but did not take part in covering the Australian band's song. Turner and Helders also recorded a version of 'Do I Wanna Know?', which can be heard below.

Tame Impala will support Arctic Monkeys as they headline two huge live shows at London's Finsbury Park later this month (May). The band will play on Friday May 23 and Saturday May 24, with Miles Kane and Royal Blood also on the bill.

Later this year Arctic Monkeys will headline the Main Stage at Reading and Leeds, their first time performing at the festival since they topped the bill five years ago. Appearing as an England and Wales festival exclusive, the band will appear at both sites at the August 22-24 festival.

The band will also headline T In The Park in Scotland as well as a number of European festivals.
