Lily Y writesTake Two: “New Person, Same Old Mistakes” (Tame Impala Vs. Rihanna)

Feel like a brand new person (but you make the same old mistakes)
I don’t care I’m in love (stop before it’s too late)
Feel like a brand new person (but you make the same old mistakes)
I finally know what is love (you don’t have what it takes)


The Original: The final track off of Tame Impala’s psychedelic-pop 2016 album Currents is a relaxing, yet haunting, synth filled ballad about self-doubt, lack of inhibition, and spur of the moment ideas. At 6 minutes long, vocalist Kevin Parker’s hypnotizing voice perfectly suits the song and results into an electrifying confrontation about a changing mindset, and accepting any future changes that will happen. 



The Other Version: More like a note-for-note remake, rather than a cover, Rihanna’s version on her 2016 album ANTI retitled "Same Ol’ Mistakes" adds nothing new or exciting to the song. Rather than adding her own pop-reggae flair that we normally see in her albums, Rihanna focuses on Tame Impala’s psychedelic aspects by almost imitating an airy, ethereal tone much like Parker’s voice.
