The song was originally released as a single from the Australian psych-rock band’s recent album ‘Currents’, now receiving a makeover courtesy of Haim and producer Ariel Rechtshaid.
‘Currents’, the group’s third album, was released last month (July 17), reaching Number Three in the UK charts. It followed on from 2012’s ‘Lonerism’ and 2010 debut ‘Innerspeaker’.

Tame Impala band leader Kevin Parker has described the record as both “groove-based” and “club-friendly”. “Listening to [our music] was very much a kind of headphone, solitary experience,” Parker told NME.
“Which is cool, but I’ve moved on from that. I’ve always loved listening to music on my own, but there’s another side of me that is just fascinated by… like Goa trance, for example – just a rave on a beach in India, you know? Where there’s someone that’s spinning the music and it’s just this free-flowing continuous energy.”
“I wanted to make something that from the sound of it could be down at the club,” Parker added. “I just realised that I’d never heard Tame Impala played somewhere with a dancefloor or where people were dancing.”
The ‘Currents’ tracklisting is as follows:
‘Let It Happen’
‘Yes I’m Changing’
‘The Less I Know The Better’
‘Cause I’m A Man’
‘Reality In Motion’
‘New Person, Same Old Mistakes’
