Miguel has been busy pushing his new single “Waves” from his fantastic album Wildheart. He commissioned an EP of remixes of the track from various artists called Rogue Waves and took Travis Scott to perform one on Ellen. Tame Impala's version premiered today on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 show, and it's streaming below. A wild match? Not really. Both Miguel and T.I.'s Kevin Parker have remarkable ideas for sweetly surreal pop music, and correspondingly this new version—unfurling psychedelia takes over for amber-coloured R&B—feels like a separate strain of the same potent herb. Listen below.
