Tame Impala cover Michael Jackson – listen
Frontman Kevin Parker reveals his version of 'Stranger In Moscow'
The new version of Jackson's 1996 single was posted to frontman Kevin Parker's Soundcloud earlier today. It follows the recent news that Parker has started a disco-inspired side-project AAA Aardvark Getdown Services alongside Pond members Jay Watson and Cam Avery and former The Chemist singer Ben Witt.
Tame Impala recently announced details of three UK headline shows to take place in July. The band will be in the UK for appearances at T In The Park and Latitude festivals, as well as support slots on Arctic Monkeys huge outdoor gigs in Finsbury Park, London in May.
Speaking in December last year, Parker revealed that he is currently working on Tame Impala's next album. Commenting on its progress, he said: "The way I do it is there's never recording 'sessions.' One finishes, the next one starts. It's just continuous. I write songs every day, but I don't necessarily get to record them. I just record whenever I can, whenever I'm home, whenever I have access to something that can make music."
