Tame Impala Covers Michael Jackson’s “Stranger In Moscow”: Listen To The Hazy Delight

5d71ac215697769680deabbf5f9fb038 Tame Impala Covers Michael Jackson’s “Stranger In Moscow”: Listen To The Hazy Delight

Australian psych-rock band Tame Impala has recorded a surprisingly great cover of Michael Jackson‘s 1996 single “Stranger In Moscow”. While far from MJ’s biggest hit (it peaked at number 91 on the Billboard Hot 100), few tracks in the King of Pop’s discography do a better job of capturing the isolation and alienation he must have been feeling toward the end of his life.

The lo-fi rock interpretation is thought to be part of Tame Impala frontman Kevin Parker‘s disco-inspired side-project. He has a busy year ahead. The band is working on the follow up to breakthrough sophomore set Lonerism and recently featured on Kendrick Lamar‘s Divergent soundtrack cut “Backwards”. Listen to their hazy take on “Stranger In Moscow” after the jump.

Did the band do Michael justice? Have your say in the comments below.
