The singer, who has recently signed a new deal with Atlantic Records after settling her contract dispute with Jay Z’s Roc Nation, is apparently keen on the band’s “psychedelic sound”.
“Rita sees the new deal as an opportunity to start afresh,” an unnamed source told the Daily Star. “She loves Tame Impala and wants a bit of their psychedelic sound for herself.”
“She wants to turn over a new leaf and for her that means a new sound,” the unnamed source added.
Announcing her new global record deal with Atlantic last week (June 20), Ora said: “Music is my first love and I am looking forward to getting my new songs released. I’m thankful to my new Atlantic Records family for all their support and encouragement. The next chapter is going to be incredible.”
Her debut album ‘Ora’ came out in 2012 and peaked at Number One in the UK. Since then she has released several singles, including the chart-topping ‘I Will Never Let You Down’, but her follow-up album was stalled by her dispute with Roc Nation.
Rihanna’s latest album ‘Anti’, which dropped in January, features a song called ‘Same Ol’ Mistakes’ which was written and co-produced by Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker.
