When Rihanna's ANTI arrived earlier this year, the ninth track was a new version of a fatalistic tune from Tame Impala, "New Person, Same Old Mistakes." Laura Mvula also honored the song this week with her own cover during a performance for BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge. In addition, she played "Phenomenal Woman," the Maya Angelou-inspired single she shared in April.
Mvula's next album, The Dreaming Room, arrives June 17. "When I listen to this music I feel whole," she explained in a press release. "I feel so at home in myself. I feel comfortable."
Check out "New Person, Same Old Mistakes" and ""Phenomenal Woman" below.
