For an episode of “Like a Version” on for Australia’s Triple J,  Arctic Monkeys tried their hand at Tame Impala’s “Feel Like We Only Go Backwards” off the Aussie band’s 2012 album, Lonerism.

For this version, Alex Turner brings out the acoustic guitar for a softer and more subtle take on the psychedelic single, which has him crooning, “I got my hopes up again/ Oh no… not again.”

There seems to be something about this song as of late, being that the song was recently reworked by Tame Impala with a little help from Kendrick Lamar for the Divergent soundtrack.

Arctic Monkeys are currently on tour in Australia, before kicking off the North American leg of their world tour on June 14 in Louisville, KY.
