This week, we reported that Miguel’s 2015 track Waves was to be the subject of a new little remix project, featuring reworkings by RAC, Tame Impala and more, including the Travis Scott version already released.
Well, they’ve pretty much all been released now, and our favourite is undoubtedly that from Tame Impala. It’s exactly what you may expect from a collaboration between the pair. Hazy, laid back, and so seductive.
Listen here, as premiered on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 Radio:
The rhythm is an easy ride, while the echoed vocal parts adds splashes of psychedelia into the mix. Thoroughly enjoyable and a uniquely gorgeous blend of the two completely distinct styles, we can only hope that the artists will work together again in future. Keep an eye out for a video to accompany the track – Miguel posted this image of himself filming with Kevin Parker earlier this week.
Below, listen to the remix from RAC and, a stripped back, acoustic version known as the “Joshua Tree Version.”
