So, it seems that there’s a massive trend everywhere of bands doing covers of epic tunes. Today Tame Impala shared their own interpretation of Michael Jackson’s single “Stranger In Moscow.” “Stranger In Moscow” is taken from Jackson’s double-disc album titled “HIStory: Past, Present, and Future, Book I,” released in 1995 via Epic Records. This was actually his first release on his own label, MJJ Productions, which consists of two discs: the first disc (HIStory Begins) is a compilation of some of his greatest hits from 1979 forward, while the second disc (History Continues) is composed entirely of new material. The majority of the second disc’s tracks were written and produced by Jackson, often in conjunction with collaborators.The album also features epic tunes, such as “Thriller,” “Beat It,” “Billie Jean,” “Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough,” or “Rock With You.” If you’re familiarized with the original song |listen here|, you’ll instantly embrace this cover. The band definitely captured the general feeling of the original, and “simply” managed a way of adding their own touch. It’s quite interesting to note that, despite being a Michael Jackson’s track, we could easily admit the possibility of being an original from the band. We’re particularly in love by the hazy and deep atmosphere of the song. Listen to the piece below, and make sure to download your copy as well!
