Tame Impala have covered Outkast's 'Prototype' - scroll down to hear their version now.

The Australian psych-rockers, whose second album 'Lonerism' topped NME's Albums Of The Year list in 2012, performed the cover as part of Triple J’s coveted Like A Version live sessions. The band take the 'Speakerboxxx/The Love Below' album track from its original form into something more reminiscent of their own material. You can see the band perform the song live in the video below.

OutKast reunited, in a fashion, earlier this year when both Andre 3000 and Big Boi appeared on a remix of the Frank Ocean album track 'Pink Matter'. Ocean himself recently revealed that he is a big fan of Tame Impala and would like to work with the band. Speaking to BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe, Ocean said: "I love Tame Impala, Tyler put me onto them and they're wicked. Their music has a freedom to it."

Meanwhile, Tame Impala will play London's Hammersmith Apollo on June 25.
