Tame Impala are a great live band. Don’t believe us? Listen to the live version of their song “Be Above It” off their 2012 album, Lonerism.

This new take on the track will be featured on Live Versions, a limited edition vinyl EP that will be available on Record Store Day, April 19.

On this live cut–recorded during a 2013 concert in Chicago–the band keeps things trippy, giving themselves a chance to meander a bit, pushing the song over the seven-minute mark.

According to a statement, with this EP, the band’s frontman Kevin Parker wanted to pick live version of the songs that were different than the album versions, giving fans a chance to experience a Tame Impala show in the comfort of their own homes.
