Kendrick Lamar Teams With Tame Impala For 'Backwards'

(Radio.com) After teaming up with Imagine Dragons for a remix of the Las Vegas band's smash hit, "Radioactive," Kendrick Lamar has connected with Australian retro rockers Tame Impala for "Backwards," a spacey new take on the group's single, "Feels Like We Only Go Backwards."

Recorded for the star-studded Divergent soundtrack, Lamar goes right in on the trippy track, laying some particularly gruff raps over the song's swirling melodies and shuffling rhythm. Vocals from Tame Impala's original version are only heard during the distinctive chorus. Listen to the new version below.

"Backwards" is the latest track to be showcased from the soundtrack, following previously highlighted songs from M83, A$AP Rocky and Pia Mia with Chance the Rapper and producer Clams Casino. The complete soundtrack album is scheduled for release on March 11, and is currently streaming in its entirety on Pitchfork. more on this story
